About Us

SWIFT is a national K-8 technical assistance center that builds school capacity to provide academic and behavioral support to improve outcomes for all students.

We are a group of people who are passionate about transforming U.S. public education so that all students are welcomed and included in their neighborhood schools and age appropriate general education classrooms with support. We work at University of Kansas Lifespan Institute, University of New Hampshire Institute on Disability, University of Oregon, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Health Science Center New Orleans, Maryland Coalition for Inclusive Education, and TASH.
