Mikayla’s Voice Inclusion Assemblies, Our Friend Mikayla, and High Fives and A Big Heart are all outstanding examples of the type of valuable dialogue that should be initiated in every classroom, and children’s capacity for understanding, acceptance and compassion.
The assembly and/or book(s) provide background knowledge regarding what it is like to have a disability and serve as a springboard for further discussion. Through these education-focused initiatives, Mikayla’s (and Jeffrey’s!) Voices are heard.
“We endeavor to maximize our inclusive practices with you in mind.”
