We partner with public and private sector leaders to build policy and investment agendas that purposefully include students with disabilities and improve outcomes for all students and families.
We work with leaders and organizations to create effective, inclusive approaches to ensure their goals, programs and initiatives embrace students with disabilities.
We use our experience working in next generation policy within states across the nation to help our partners explore new strategies to support family and school efforts to meet the existing and emerging needs of students.
Our fundamental belief is that the traditional one-size fits all system of education is not working. Both our clients and the students they serve deserve customized solutions to achieve their goals
Karla Phillips-Krivickas is the founder of Think Inclusion and one of the nation’s foremost thought leaders on education policy and reform. She has decades of experience in state and federal policy, and currently serves as Senior Director of Policy at KnowledgeWorks where she helps states build education systems that support student-centered learning. In all her work, Karla channels her professional and personal experiences to passionately advocate for all students, especially those with disabilities.
“Karla and I sometimes disagreed when we were young policy wonks, but she doesn't care about the education wars when it comes to her children. This isn't political for her. She's right. We can do better. Public schools should be open for every child.”
— Becky Hill, Founder, Hill Advocacy
