Taina Karru-Olsen

Taina Karru-Olsen s a parent of a Disabled child and the Co-founder and Director of Inclusion For ALL.   

Taina is a special education advocate and an inclusion trainer with ten years of experience in supporting students in gaining inclusive placements, in supporting and training families in special education and inclusive practices, as well as collaborating with families, IEP teams, teachers, building leadership, school districts, OSPI, and partner organizations such as TIES in designing and implementing inclusive environments and practices.

Inclusion For ALL is a grassroots cross-disability advocacy and education network focused on meaningful and equitable inclusive education in K-12 schools in Washington State.      

We believe and know that fully and meaningfully inclusive education in public K-12 schools is an evidence-based best practice that is foundational
to an inclusive and equitable society and essential for the survival and the eventual flourishing of Disabled people. Full and meaningful inclusion for all students, including students with significant support needs and Disabled students who are multiply marginalized, achieved via the principles of Disability Justice and Disability Pride is our shared goal.

Our founding values are Disability Pride, Disability Rights, Disability Justice, and solidarity.
