What is the PEAK Conference on Inclusive Education?

Inclusive education is a process of school reform that creates equity in education and increases achievement for ALL students. In inclusive schools, students, families, general and special educators, administrators, support staff, and community members work together to make curriculum accessible to all learners and to differentiate instruction. This conference brings members of each of these distinct groups together to learn and collaborate, and focuses on strategies that support the inclusion of students with all types of disabilities in general education.
