Wendy Stroeve is a teacher who has worked in NSW secondary schools and TAFE and is the mother of Alex, a young man with high support needs. The Stroeve family regards inclusiveness as a moral imperative and has long ago left behind 'when' or 'why' to focus squarely on 'now' and 'how'. Alex has recently completed his school life having been happily, successfully and fully included from kindergarten to Year 12. He now enters adult life advantaged by the skills, experiences and contacts this inclusive education has given him.
