NYSAN FAQ on Including Students with Disabilities
The New York State Afterschool Network (NYSAN) has published Including All Students: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) About Including Students with Disabilities in Afterschool and Summer Programs, a resource that defines disability and inclusion and the rights afforded to people with disabilities before going into greater detail on best practices, tips, and resources for inclusion. It also identifies organizations throughout the state and country that provide additional training and resources for programs on inclusion practices. Finally, the FAQ directs program providers to tools with which to assess how inclusive their programs are and guidelines for making the necessary changes.
