Providing inclusive environments for preschool children with disabilities can be a challenge, yet it is a requirement under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Intentional collaboration and braided funding with early childhood partners can create high-quality programs that support inclusive opportunities. This session will highlight finance strategies and funding mechanisms that may be used to create inclusive early childhood environments.  Participants will have an opportunity to discuss challenges, share successes and preview tools that may be used to support the financing of inclusive programs.
