Support for Schools

This includes summer work experience opportunities and supporting educational sessions for families to learn how critical transition supports are for students. Summit DD staff works with elementary age school professionals on how to build inclusive experiences in classrooms. In addition, the Agency works with middle school students on changing perceptions about peers with disabilities.
