Discover Inclusive Wellness is an addendum to CDC's Comprehensive School Physical Activity Program. This guide will help teachers and students learn how to effectively include children with disabilities in their advocacy and school wellness efforts. As students are learning in middle school to work collaboratively to advocate for healthy individuals, families, and schools, this guide would assist teachers with educating their students on how to effectively include students with disabilities in their school wellness plans and how they can advocate for full inclusion.
