Description: Nancy Brady is an Inclusion Specialist and an Assistive Technology Specialist in Southern California. Nancy has been working to end segregated education based upon a disability and support inclusive education for those with the most severe disabilities since 2002. Her approach to successful Inclusion is a cooperative venture starting with students and their families, empowering classroom aides and providing teachers with simple ideas and accommodations that are easy to implement on a moment’s notice. Using Assistive Technology and simple classroom accommodations, students with autism who are nonverbal can have access to the general education curriculum in the least restrictive environment as Congress and IDEA intended.
