On Saturday I went to FestABLE, the inaugural National Festival of Specialist Learning, and co-presented a session on Teach Us Too.  Meeting with others trying to raise the standards in special schools in a collaborative way is so important to affect change for those in special education.

Throughout the day I met professionals and parents putting the educational needs of the child first, but the person I enjoyed meeting the most was in a wheelchair and had just completed a philosophy degree.  Inspired by my message, he endorsed my desire for all children to be taught to read and write regardless of their label.  So I left the festival with renewed strength for the task ahead and new hope for the future.
