The Inclusion in Texas Network works in collaboration with the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to build a statewide culture of high expectations for students with disabilities and to significantly improve academic and functional outcomes for students served by special education. Our goal is to build school district capacity to develop and appropriately implement instructional programs that provide meaningful access to inclusive environments and grade-level standards, where appropriate. Our region-wide professional development, customized training, and individualized technical assistance allow us to guide districts and charter schools in meeting the requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Act.
Our Inclusive Services consultants offer support in the following areas:
- Developing and supporting inclusive environments
- Developing and supporting collaborative relationships between educators
- Utilizing instructional best practices and strategies to meet the needs of diverse learners
- Classroom, campus, district, and statewide assessment requirements as it relates to accommodating the needs of students with disabilities.
If you would like to schedule professional development or need support in the areas listed above, you may contact us using the information provided below. We are here to assist you and encourage you to partner with ESC Region 11 to ensure all Texas students receive instruction in the Texas Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) with appropriate modifications, accommodations, and supports.
