Frustrated mom opens up high school experience for students with developmental disabilities

Mission Statement 

Together Including Every Student (TIES) promotes the participation of students with developmental disabilities in extracurricular and community activities by creating effective, natural support provided by trained student volunteers.

Vision Statement 

Opportunities for personal and social growth are essential to the development of healthy individuals. All people share a diverse range of attributes that can be recognized and valued. Society benefits from the active participation and contributions of people with disabilities in school and community life.


 Our intention is to share a concise description and the program design of Together Including Every Student (TIES) to those interested in inclusive recreation for students with developmental disabilities. We hope to provide you with the essential information that will allow you to assess your interest and readiness to implement TIES.

One aspect that deserves celebration is that TIES is for all students; it is an effort to unite children with peers so they can learn with and from each other.  Their learning is enhanced by their diversity. Margo VanHaneghan, Director of Special Education, Brighton Central School District, 1998
