“Her portfolio is her marketing package.”
That’s what someone in the field of inclusion just recently told me.
I’m spending some time working on Sabrina’s portfolio today. She’s had one for about a year now, but I’m updating it and adding more information about her recently activities and sports, and adding a section for the future.
Sabrina’s portfolio highlights who she is, and what she can do and accomplish. It explains how people can help support her. And it explains the high expectations we have for what she can accomplish and who she can continue to be.
Now that she’s in school, it’s used to introduce her to new teachers and staff. It’ll be used to show what she can accomplish in an inclusive setting. It’ll be used during various transitions, to show our expectations for her life.
Does your child or the child you support have a portfolio?
