- About the Lead Presenter: Zachary Rosetti, a former special education teacher and inclusion facilitator from New Hampshire, is currently an Associate Professor of Special Education in the Wheelock College of Education & Human Development at Boston University. His research focuses on social interactions and friendships between students with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities, family engagement in special education, and sibling roles and relationships.
