From Barriers to Belonging: Including Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
What does it really mean to “belong” within a school or community? Is there a destination that lies beyond mere integration or inclusion? This presentation will address ten dimensions of belonging and the ways in which schools might better support individuals with intellectual disability, autism, and other developmental disabilities in each of these areas. Dr. Carter’s research focuses on inclusive practices for students with severe disabilities within elementary, secondary, and postsecondary schools. Drawing upon his scholarship over the last two decades, this presentation will spur conversation about what it means to be a community of belonging.
