News and Announcements

Brittany Gunning is an Inclusion Specialist for The Arc of Philadelphia’s Include Me program. Inclusion Specialists are prepared to provide onsite support and training for school personnel/student teams, including administrators, general and special education teachers, guidance counselors, school nurses, para-professionals and support staff, as well as family members of children with disabilities in Pennsylvania school districts. We talked with Brittany to learn more about her role and why it is important.

Your voice is needed to help us understand barriers and inequities that people with disabilities in our communities have experienced through the pandemic.
