Inclusive programs serving young children with disabilities provide many benefits for children with and without disabilities. Studies show increased cognitive, language and social-emotional skills for children with disabilities. Children without disabilities are more likely to accept and respond positively to diversity. Inclusive programs increase access to educational and community resources for children with disabilities, while improving outcomes for all children and families.
Early childhood programs face challenges to inclusion: attitudinal barriers, legal requirements, staff support, and partnerships. Yet high quality inclusive settings exist all over our country that set good examples. This webinar shares the recommendations from the Policy Statement on Inclusion of Children with Disabilities in Early Childhood Programs and strategies to support professional development, collaboration, and family engagement. Learn solutions from experienced early childhood professionals.
All sessions are 1.5 hours long, and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
2:oo PM – 3:30 PM Eastern Time.
