Why the sunflowers, Toby?

A few people asked me why there are sunflowers on the site. Let’s begin with the obvious-sunflowers are beautiful and unique. Each sunflower stretches for the warmth, we as educators impart. As I stated in one of my books, Inclusion Strategies That Work!, a child with a disABILITY is a child first. He or she is not defined by his or her disABILITY or difference. The disABILITY is only one part or petal of a flower. According to ProFlowers, sunflowers come in a variety of colors and types, symbolizing warmth, brightness, loyalty and constancy. Inclusion is therefore a sunflower!
