Including Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities

These materials were originally developed for individuals who work with infants and toddlers who have disabilities and are easily adapted for those who serve preschool-age children who have disabilities.

Rooted in the key concept of "belonging," these sessions examine the beliefs and attitudes that influence and affect adults and children in inclusive settings and provide numerous practical strategies and tools to help families and providers implement high-quality inclusive services.

 



Building Relationships with Families

Families are the enduring presence in the lives of young children with disabilities. This volume contains activities to support early care and education staff and families in developing positive relationships that support collaboration and family leadership.

 



Collaboration and Teaming

Inclusion depends on a team of family members and service providers who assume collective responsibility for coordinating services to young children with disabilities and their families. This makes teaming a vital part of the process. The sessions in this volume provide a comprehensive set of strategies and activities that support high-quality collaboration and teaming.

 



Preschool Inclusion Series

The Preschool Inclusion Series of the SpecialQuest Multimedia Training Library focuses on several aspects of including preschool-age children who have disabilities in programs and settings with their typically developing peers. This series contains four videos. The first provides an overview of the benefits and rationale for inclusion, as well as perspectives from many stakeholders of what makes inclusion work. Two additional videos each feature a story about the successful inclusion of a child—in one, a girl named Samantha; in the other, a boy named Drew. In these videos, viewers learn what it took for their families and their service providers to ensure that these children were given the supports and opportunities they needed to flourish in programs with their typically developing peers. The fourth video provides practical and concrete strategies for making the Individualized Education Program (IEP) process that is collaborative and that ensures inclusion, with perspectives from family members, service providers, and administrators from several service delivery systems. Five sessions, complete with facilitator scripts and handouts, accompany the videos.
