CHASING THE DREAM: DELIVERING INCLUSIVE EDUCATION CHILDREN OF ALL ABILITIES AND IDENTITIES
What can parents with special needs children do to optimize their children's education and quality of life? One answer for New York parents is The IDEAL School of Manhattan, which has been a game changer for many families as New York’s only K-12+ independent inclusion school. The school was founded in 2006 by three mothers with sons with Down syndrome. Their goal: create a diverse and inclusive independent school that affirms and accepts the full identities of all students.
