An inclusion fairytale: A parent registers for the program at least one month in advance and is very responsive in answering questions full about their child's disability. The Park District submits a very complete request with ALL pertinent information, and the SRA is able to pull from their abundance of expert inclusion staff for the program. The Park District and SRA staff get along great, and the child is fully included in the program. An inclusion reality: THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN! The presenters will speak on how to combat the difficulties of providing inclusion services and how SRAs and Park Districts can work together for common goals. Attendees will get the chance to anonymously submit real scenarios and the presenters will help give suggestions and problem-solve.
