Beginning in 2011, Damian began the transition from spending most of this day in a self-contained classroom to being fully included in general education. These two videos give a brief overview of his story.

While Damian’s inclusion story is not unique, it is certainly not the norm. As educators, parents and advocates for inclusion, we must strive to provide inclusive opportunities for all of our students. There is simply no reason not to start this process (even if it is gradual). Thanks for your time and attention.
