Philosophy

Include Me Too is a place where everyone is treated and respected equally. Labels and diagnosis are left outside, while the whole person comes in and begins their journey of love and acceptance. To be around others and interact at the satisfaction of the individual. The amount of participation is up to the child or adult. The purpose of “Include me too” is for each person to experience recreational time like others without disabilities. Complete freedom to let go and be yourself while learning, having fun and being with others. To be a part of something. To be accepted. To be INCLUDED.

“When you have a disability, knowing that you are not defined by it is the sweetest feeling.”

– Anne Wafula Strike
