The Spirit of Inclusion: Stories of Success in Education Shared by Filmaker Dan Habib @ Antioch University New England, Community Room
Apr 2 @ 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm
The Spirit of Inclusion: Stories of Success in Education Shared by Filmaker Dan Habib @ Antioch University New England, Community Room | Keene | New Hampshire | United States

Professional Development Certificates Available

Join us for an after-school event with filmmaker Dan Habib, creator of the films, Including Samuel and Who Cares About Kelsey?

Habib will draw on his experiences as a parent and filmmaker to talk about how the spirit of inclusion can become part of our community culture.

Join us for a conversation featuring stories of heart and courage from Dan Habib and members of our local community.

Why attend?
For too long we have had two separate educational systems: general education and special education, existing in schools beside one another. In order to serve all children it is essential that we uncover and challenge the practices that segregate by academic and social ability. Dan Habib will talk about how we can disable that segregation.

Who should attend?
Teachers, parents, counselors, administrators, social service providers, and anyone interested in how people with differing abilities are included in our lives and our culture should attend. AUNE’s Applied Psychology and Education departments offer graduate level programs including an Autism Spectrum Disorders certificate and Elementary/Special Education teacher licensure. For 50 years Antioch has been making a difference in the lives of children and families.
