About webinar #2: Research has long demonstrated that high-quality inclusion benefits children with and without disabilities, and that non-inclusive environments can impact learning negatively. Each of the three webinars in this series focus on one of the three essential features of high quality inclusion: access, participation, and support. This webinar focuses on supporting participation of children with disabilities in high quality inclusive environments through understanding: federal policies and laws, including IDEA and Head Start Performance Standards, related to providing services and support for young children with disabilities; evidence-based practices that promote active engagement, participation, and a sense of belonging, and each sector's (ED/HHS) role in ensuring young children with disabilities are fully participating and engaged with typically developing peers.
