Everyone deserves an education that will help them live to their fullest potential, but not everyone learns the same way. Different types of disabilities, language barriers, cultural norms and behavioral challenges all affect students’ learning. As a national leader in evidence-based educational practices, the Institute works with educators, district administrators, government officials, and other leaders to discover, test, and expand methods for providing students an education in the most inclusive environment possible. This education is based upon high expectations that involve access and accomplishment in the general education curriculum. Central to our work is the foundational notion that if students don’t learn the way we teach, we must teach the way they learn. Our work creates classrooms where all students -- including those with the most significant cognitive disabilities -- are engaged in the same activities as their classmates, with variations in the instructional content to meet a variety of learning needs.
