Start Here

Welcome, I am so glad that you are here!

If you believe that everyone has gifts to offer this wonderful world of ours, you are in the right place. I have been an inclusive Jewish Educator for nearly twenty years and this blog is where I share my thoughts and stories about Judaism, disability inclusion, and education - and often how the three intersect!

I'd suggest starting with a few of the most popular posts: 

Teaching the Difference Between Fairness and Equality

Fair Isn't Equal 

Ditch the Clips - Why You Need to Stop Using Behavior Charts in the Classroom RIGHT NOW

Making Sense of Behavior - Girls, Boys, Attention Deficits and Stereotypes 

We Judge One Another

I'd also love to invite you to the series, The ABC's of Inclusion

Or, just dive in wherever you might like! When you like what you read, please share it with others. I hope you'll stop back often!

One more note: We are each on a journey to grow into our best selves, which hopefully means our most inclusive selves. Let's all be willing to leave room for that growth, whether it be in daily practice, our attitudes, or our language use. My own evolution has led me to language shifts (despite retaining this blog's URL):

New Research Supports a Shift in Language Use - Why We Should Stop Using the Phrase Special Needs

Disabilities vs. Special Needs - It's Time to Use the Words We Truly Mean

Choosing Our Language Carefully {Using the Words You Really Intend}
