Inspiring the courage to reach and teach all of our children; Best practices to support equity and success.
The annual All Born (in) Conference is an exciting day for parents, caregivers, and professionals working to end segregation in schools and the communities. Learn how to use Universal Design for Learning and Best Practices to reach and teach every child, share, and make connections so that we can all go forth to open the eyes of the wider community to the fact that our children are all born “in”.
The Conference was founded by Northwest Down Syndrome Association in 2006 in partnership with Portland State University’s joint certification program and the Center on Inclusive Education. It has grown to be a cornerstone resource in the Northwest region, engaging many innovative parents, professionals, and community partners to embrace the gifts of every learner.
