Empower every student in your inclusive classroom.

Hi, I'm Michael Pascaris. I believe every student can succeed when instruction, assessments & learning environments are designed for their needs, not ours.

My mission is to support my colleagues with strategies and resources for teaching students with learning disabilities, autism, ADHD, and other special needs.

My teaching career began in 2011 at a treatment centre for children with a dual-diagnosis. After that, I taught in an Autism program for six years. In that role, I created a vocational training program that fostered inclusion within my school and prepared my students to transition successfully to meaningful employment and college. Currently, I am head of Special Education at Western Technical Commercial School in Toronto. I use edtech as a tool to empower students with disabilities. After class I coach my school's soccer team. I am also a graduate student.

In the December 2019 issue of Professionally Speaking magazine, I share how to use technology to support students with a learning disability, and help them build their self-advocacy skills.
