Lead Speaker:
Alexis P. Dixon
Juli K. Dixon


Alex says, “It took a stroke and a coma but now I like math!” Students with special needs are often taught exclusively through key words and direct instruction. Alex, who has special needs, and her mother Juli Dixon share how they successfully replaced key words and direct instruction with teaching for understanding in an inclusive setting.
