Building Self-Determination Through Inclusive Extracurricular Programs, republished by SAGE Journals and authored by two of the Center for Leadership in Disability’s faculty members: Emily Graybill, PhD, and Andrew Roach, PhD. Erin Vinoski is also an author of the article.

Building Self-Determination Through Inclusive Extracurricular Programs explains how extracurricular activities provide students a range of rich experiences that influence their academic achievement, leadership and communication skills, and career paths. Students with disabilities (SWDs) historically have had limited access to extracurricular programs and thus fewer opportunities for academic, social, and vocational development. Educators and administrators need to understand the importance of inclusive extracurricular activities and also how to successfully implement these programs. The theory of self-determination can help guide the development and implementation of inclusive extracurricular activities.
