Today on the podcast, a rare solo episode about why I call myself an inclusionist.

For some, the word "inclusionist" has a negative association. I make the case that there is more to the word than just believing that we should get rid of special education or that inclusion only counts if it is "100%."

I tell the story of my inclusion journey and how it led me to what I am doing now, advocating for the full and authentic inclusion for students with disabilities.

Thanks for your time and attention!
