Our special guest this week on The Inclusive Class Radio Show is Frances Stetson, Ph.D. Dr. Stetson is currently President of Stetson & Associates, Inc., an educational consulting firm specializing in supporting systems change in schools – with a focus on inclusive practices, differentiated instruction and quality standards for instruction and leadership for struggling learners. They now sponsor and administer the Inclusive Schools Network and ISN website that offer free resources, blogs, and strategies.
Dr. Stetson began her career as a teacher of children who were blind or had limited vision. Throughout her career she has worked at a state department of education to address the needs of students with cognitive challenges; conducted research for the US Department of Education on least restrictive environment/inclusion; and directed special education and curriculum and instruction for a regional education service center. Since 1989, Dr. Stetson has worked with thousands of school districts to implement quality inclusive education services across the US.
We have also assisted Kazakhstan and Kirgizstan in creating more inclusive schools – an effort in response to parent hopes to keep their children with disabilities in their home community.
