Summit on DisAbility and Inclusion 

Each year, TPI will present their practice initiatives and research that results in policy recommendations to decision-makers at the local, state, and eventually national level. The Summit is TPI's signature event that brings together current research and community partners to highlight best practices that improve the lives of people with disabilities by supporting inclusivity for all. The presentations during the Summit will appeal to self-advocates, families, educators, teacher education faculty, medical professionals, and service providers.
