"A disability is one part of a whole person. Every person has something to give, is of equal value and worth, and deserves equal access and opportunities."

Colleen is a parent and advocate for inclusion, a Penn State graduate, a graduate of Partners in Policymaking and president of
Kids Together, Inc.
an all-volunteer unfunded non-profit.

Please read my articles on inclusion posted at Kids Together and sign up for the newsletter or join the inclusion listserv. I have provided over 15 years of volunteer work to promote inclusion and advocate for my son and others.

What Planet?

What Planet?
Why "DO" they think segregating children with disabilities is a good idea? This cartoon will get people thinking about how strange it is!

No Child Left Behind?

No Child Left Behind?
Wouldn't it be great if they really meant "no child left behind"? Why is it so hard for people to really mean "all" when they say "all"? This design will get people thinking.

Zero Tolerance

Zero Tolerance
Why doesn't zero tolerance go both ways?
I have a dream!

A Super Advocate

A Super Advocate
This picture absolutely captures the extent to which parents and advocates feel they have to prepare!

And then what?...

And then what?...
This cartoon shows a teacher that doesn't want to teach students with disabilities. She acquires a disability and doesn't want to be discriminated against. This definitely will get people thinking.

Mixed Messages

Mixed Messages
Bring attention to the messages sent to all kids. Often "celebrate diversity" doesn't include people with disabilities. Everyone welcome should mean "everyone".

Life's a "Real" Beach!

Life's a "Real" Beach!
This cartoon captures the basic difference between practicing for life and really living it! Who would rather be in a meeting, or pretending to be at the beach, rather then the real thing?

LRE to the Max

LRE to the Max
You know the law, let others know! The perfect conversation starter, also makes an ideal gift, as well as a great statement at an IEP meeting.
