This post was originally published at AZ is Amazing. AZ is one of the many young self-advocates that are taking to new media to highlight the benefits of inclusion. I am honored to share her story with you.

So   I  have been hearing multiple times about  the fight parents   need to have  to give their child an inclusive education.  Every time  I hear about this my heart breaks because I know  what the benefits are to being include  and I feel so powerless because I can not anything to fix the system  but hopefully  it will be different in three years  since I am becoming a  special education teacher for now this is all.  I do I hope everyone enjoys the video.  Feel Free to share  just leave a comment first.
