Beginning with hearing the voices of those for whom special education is intended: the students.
Through forums like RISE!, we provide communities with the tools to bridge the empathy gap between students, families, educators and policymakers.
By facilitating special education team members in working together in a constructive way, taking each others' needs into consideration and remembering that the student is a full-fledged team member.
The results are more meaningful, student directed individual education plans which can be implemented with less stress, more rigor, and better results.
Using the power of collaboration informed by student and teacher voice, we help schools and policymakers take a fresh look at policies and procedures from multiple perspectives.
The result is the transformation of cultures which limit possibilities into environments where everyone is working together creatively to produce better outcomes for students as well as greater satisfaction for their teachers.
