Starting with the End in Mind

The PEAL Center and PEAL's 21 and Able Project in conjunction with the PA Inclusion Collective is excited to present "Starting with the End in Mind", a 4-part online series on building an inclusive life for students with disabilities, starting in February.

Register here:
Award-winning filmmaker Dan Habib will join us for three nights with his son Samuel Habib co-presenting one evening to discuss how an inclusive education starting in the earliest grades will prepare students with disabilities for transition to higher education and integrated employment as adults.
We'll kick off the series on the first night of February with a virtual screening of "Including Samuel," Dan's first film documenting Sam's earliest years in elementary school. This film is a great way to set the framework for the three evenings that follow that will dig deeper into how to include all students and why an inclusive education leads to an inclusive adulthood, such as integrated employment and independent living, for people with disabilities.
SESSIONS: (all sessions will be held virtually from 6-8 p.m. EST)
  • 2/1/23 "Including Samuel" Virtual Film Screening and Self-Advocate Panel Discussion
  • 2/8/23 Disabling Segregation and screening of "My Disability Roadmap"
  • 2/15/23 Starting Early: Creating a Roadmap for Inclusive IEPs and Transition Plans
