Primary Speaker name:
This session will focus on the importance of inclusive practices beginning from the time a baby, toddler, or preschooler is identified as having a disability. We will look at the myths about inclusion and what the research, facts, & laws tell us. We will consider the important role attitudes and beliefs take in creating and maintaining a foundation of inclusion and in developing policy, guidance, and implementing practices and strategies. Participants will engage in an activity and small group discussion that examines personal attitudes and beliefs. Participants will leave with resources and tools.
