Inclusion Institutes

The purpose of Inclusion Institutes is to provide the opportunity for school personnel and parents to plan the details of inclusion for one individual child who has developmental disabilities. The Sherlock Center believes that one of the major barriers to meaningful inclusion is the lack of dialogue about the purposes, curriculum, and procedural details that are part of effective implementation. More than 200 schools have sent teams to prior Inclusion Institutes to discuss and plan the details of inclusion for an individual child. The teams developed an inclusion plan using a process that not only works with individual children, but can be generalized to a larger school population.

Each Student-Focused Team Must Include: Additional Team Members may include (but are not limited to): The Sherlock Center covers the cost of the meeting space and meals, and provides: Location: Whispering Pines Conference Center, W. Alton Jones Campus

There is no cost to participate, however:
The Sherlock Center believes that a stress-free, distraction-free environment is important for teams of parents and professionals to create workable inclusion plans; the Whispering Pines Conference Center at the W. Alton Jones Campus offers this kind of environment. To plan space and food needs, the Sherlock Center must commit to Alton Jones for a certain number of participants, and must pay for the committed number, regardless of cancellations. Therefore, school districts will be billed $40.00 per person for any team or individual who registers and then cancels within 31 days of their scheduled Inclusion Institute.
