(2017, July) | Useful to educators and to Parent Centers and families who would like to share this information with educators.

When teachers open their classroom doors this new school year, they’ll be welcoming students with a variety of experiences, strengths, and challenges. A few children in the new class might have disabilities or developmental delays that impact their learning, social skills, or behavior.

Educators can watch this 52-minute webinar from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) to uncover how to best understand and implement inclusionary practices into the classroom that will help children with developmental delays or disabilities participate successfully alongside their peers. Families might wish to share this resource with their child’s classroom teacher.
