John Pratt: The Excellence in Special Education Summit is sponsored by the John Pratt Memorial Fund at the Ivy Street School, and the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts. John served as Associate Director of the Whitehead Institute for 25 years. He was also a member of the MAB Board and cared deeply about the work that the Ivy Street School does to help young people with brain injuries and other neurological problems develop the skills they need to lead successful lives as adults. His Memorial Fund is dedicated to facilitating the impact of research on practice at the School in order to improve student outcomes. John would be delighted to have this as part of his legacy.
The Ivy Street School is a program of MAB Community Services, which has been creating opportunities for people with disabilities since 1903. Our experience allows us to forge strong community partnerships, so we can meet the need for high quality services and transform lives.
