Join us for a special interview with Karen Blacher. Karen is a Long Island based writer, artist, teacher, and mom to three amazing, neurodiverse children. She currently teaches secular studies to a small class of 3rd and 4th grade students at the Chabad Cheder in Coram, New York, where her constantly-evolving classroom design is informed by her experiences with her own neurodiverse children, her years of work as a children’s entertainer, and the voices of autistic adults and advocates.

In the fall of 2020, a Facebook post Karen made about the benefits of inclusive educational practices for neurotypical learners went viral, propelling her into the public eye and allowing her to connect with a vast and varied community of educators, parents, mental health professionals and advocates working toward the shared goal of inclusivity in education.
