Think Big: We Don't Know What We Don't Know

Speakers

This session will shed light on the ideas of presumed competence/potential and the "least dangerous assumption" when educating students with disabilities, especially those with significant disabilities. Addressing barriers without prejudgment of students' ultimate capabilities is critical in helping all students reach their true potential. The session will include real-life stories of students whose trajectories were changed for the better when competence was presumed.
