About Us

SWIFT is a national technical assistance center that builds whole system—state, district, school, and community—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, and have strong partnerships with colleagues at University of New Hampshire Institute on Disability and the Maryland Coalition for Inclusive Education, and TASH.
