Honoring John Pratt
John Pratt 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 MAB and the Ivy Street School do to help young people with special needs develop the skills they need to have successful lives as adults. The John Pratt Memorial Fund and Lecture are dedicated to facilitating the impact of research on practice at the school in order to improve outcomes. He would be delighted to have this as part of his legacy.
