This session will discuss the regulatory and policy foundations supporting inclusive opportunities for young children and their families. Policies from IDEA Part C and Part B Section 619, the Head Start Performance Standards, as well as civil rights laws such as Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act, have a significant and positive impact on the provision of inclusive early care and learning in our communities. There will be ample time in the session for questions and for participants to discuss their own community scenarios for facilitating inclusive opportunities.
