"Understanding Inclusion" Series (University of Illinois)


Early CHOICES and the Early Intervention Training Program at the University of Illinois recently launched a new series called Understanding Inclusion. The Understanding Inclusion series contains 6 topics that explore key ideas about inclusion in early childhood. Developed for families with family input, it is just as meaningful and useful for practitioners working with families who have children from birth to 5. In each module topic, a topic guide is available for reflecting and applying what you learn to your own experience.  The guide also has additional resources to explore the topic further.

The topics are: Inclusion Is a Journey, Least Restrictive Environment, Commitment to Inclusive Practices (Law, Policy), Benefits of Inclusive Practices, Inclusive Settings, and Implementing and Advocating for Inclusion. Resources are in English and Spanish.
