Read Inclusion Starts With Me on The Mighty

For Marya Ketchell, inclusion starts by showing up with her son Wyatt, who has Down Syndrome. When they go to the playground or a music class, she hopes that other kids will play with Wyatt and learn how to communicate with him. She hopes that people will ask questions, rather than make judgements. Marya writes, “Inclusion starts with me, but it depends on you.”
