Advocating for Inclusion: The Highs and Lows and What to Know  

Join Megan Libassi, mother of 6 years old Samuel, as she shares her story of advocating for inclusion in the public school Kindergarten, and the journey that brought them to file a law-suit. What can we expect when we advocate inclusion? what are our children’s rights for inclusion? And how do you know if you’re doing the right things as a parent? These are tough questions, and Megan will share openly about the ups and downs and why this was the best decision they ever made.
