Inclusive Education Scholarships
The Arc of Texas
The Arc of Texas creates opportunities for all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to actively participate in their communities and make the choices that affect their lives in a positive manner.
The Arc of Texas advocacy program and its Inclusion Works! Conference help children with disabilities. Through our advocacy program, staff is able to advocate for state laws, programming and funding levels that support children with disabilities so they can live full and meaningful lives in their communities.
Fund this project and provide scholarships for families to attend the premier conference on inclusive education in Texas, The Arc’s Inclusion Works! Conference. Inclusion Works exists to better prepare parents and school staff to work together to educate students who qualify for Special Education services in the regular educational environment with supplementary aids and services and so that those students are prepared for further education, employment and independent living as noted in the purpose of the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
This RoomFunding Project will fund scholarships to send 12 families to the conference.
