The Christopher's Story video is used to consider what "inclusive services" means and can look like for a young child with a disability and his family. In the session activities, participants identify strategies for providing coordinated, comprehensive, family-centered services through their partnerships with families, early care and education, early intervention, and other community partners in their own programs and communities.
This session is an example of one of many ways Christopher’s Story can be used. Participants will have an opportunity to view and discuss a variety of examples of how the family, the service providers, and the community created a warm supportive setting for Christopher and his family.
One question that is often asked is why Christopher’s father does not speak in the video. Although we see how close he is to his son, he chose not to be interviewed.
