Upcoming SRTS Webinar: Ensuring Your Safe Routes to School Program Includes Children with Disabilities

In recent years, many schools have begun Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs that encourage more walking and bicycling. As you reach out to students to develop these programs, it is important to remember that students with disabilities can and should be a part of your program from the earliest planning stages. This webinar will address making your program inclusive: how to work with children with disabilities, what kinds of instruction they need and practical advice on involving students, their parents and special education professionals.

Presenters:

Amy Rauworth, National Center on Physical Activity and Disability
Jennifer Toole, National Center for Safe Routes to School, Toole Design Group
Melody Geraci, Active Transportation Alliance
