Watch it here. Reflecting the 2017 National Early Childhood Inclusion Institute's theme of Trusting Partnerships in a Time of Change, leaders from federal agencies and national early childhood professional organizations shared information and insights on early childhood directions and initiatives related to inclusion and to supporting children with disabilities and their families. Participants also asked questions and shared their perspectives with the panelists. FPG's Pamela Winton, chair emerita of the popular three-day conference, moderated the panels.
