Which inclusive practices do early childhood programs need to master in order to welcome and support all learners? This engaging edWebinar will reveal the keys to effective inclusion for young children! Presented by Kathryn Wahl, Director of the Santa Clara County Office of Education’s (SCCOE) Inclusion Collaborative Department, this presentation will introduce you to the 12 inclusive practices with the strongest research base for supporting young children in inclusive programs.
You’ll discover how each key practice—from conflict resolution to transitions between activities—contributes to successful, high-quality inclusion. Kathryn will also share how she’s used the Inclusive Classroom Profile (ICP™) with early childhood programs to effectively assess their inclusive practices and take steps toward improving them. Head start professionals, inclusion facilitators, early childhood/ECSE directors and administrators, and special education educators will benefit from attending this edWebinar. There will be time for questions after the presentation.
