Irving School District's SWITCHED Chapter: Bridging Learning and Inclusivity
Irving, TX, USA
Founded in 2022 by the Irving School District, the SWITCHED chapter stands as a beacon of collaboration and innovation. Middle school STEM classes within the district come together to adapt toys, forging connections between students and fostering inclusivity. These adapted toys find a special place in the hearts of their peers in special education within the district, opening doors to shared play and learning experiences. Additionally, this chapter has developed a unique special education teaching curriculum that leverages these adapted toys as educational tools. Through their remarkable efforts, they've not only enriched playtime but also transformed the classroom experience for students of all abilities.
