This year’s conference theme, “Be Creative - Innovative Solutions for an Inclusive Life,” reminds us to think outside the box during times of uncertainty. Creativity, innovation, and determination can pave the way for meaningful and inclusive lives for people with disabilities.

Extracurricular activities facilitate inclusion in the school community. This session will describe a study that examined the participation of secondary age students with intellectual disability in school sponsored extracurricular activities. Findings from the study suggest a relation between grade, disability, and AAC usage and the types of activities in which students participate, the amount of time they spend in activities, and the extent to which they participate in activities that only include students with disabilities.
