Terrific "inclusion" program visits schools
What them to come to your school? That can be arranged!

Building Inclusion Together is a community awareness program created by Jennifer Monteleone and Lisa Okada Visitacion, parents of children with developmental disabilities, and graduates of the Arc of King County 2008-09 Advocating for Change Together Leadership program.

The goals of Building Inclusion Together are to:

* Break down mis-perceptions about people with developmental disabilities.
* Generate discussions and increase awareness within our communities about what inclusion means.
* Build more opportunities for the full inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in every day life experiences at school, at work and in the community so that people with developmental disabilities are accepted as people first.

In October 2009, Building Inclusion Together will be traveling to high schools throughout Washington State to talk about disability history in our state, inclusion, and begin discussions about the ways in which student leaders can make a difference in their school communities.
