"The best teachers are still students." ~ Meghan Mulvenna, Founder of Special Travelers
The belief of Special Travelers is that education is a lifelong journey. The classrooms of early years are only the beginning, yet play a critical role for the following stages of individuals' lives. When education is relevant for all, each member of society will become an involved contributor. We offer lectures and consultative services to families, schools, agencies and businesses to better understand and involve members of all abilities into classrooms, community settings and places of work. See our Publications page for a sample of training and workshops.
“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I may remember. Involve me and I learn.” ~ Benjamin Franklin
The aim of Special Travelers is to empower every individual on his/her journey. For individuals with learning and communication differences, this includes having access to a range of experiences within their communities to understand the relevancy of learning and communicating with others. For family members, empowerment is seeing and encouraging what each member of the family can do, recognizing each other's strengths, along with areas that require more support. For educators and community members, to empower is to include and welcome all with dignity. Read some of our Blog posts for practical examples and inspiration.
