Participants discuss specific strategies and practices for initially planning to include a child with a disability in early care and education in collaboration with early intervention. Participants are introduced to two Inclusion Planning Checklists for serving infants and toddlers with significant disabilities and their families in either a home-based or a center-based early care and education program. The video, Getting Started, offers a story of one program that includes a young child named Jalisa in an early care and education setting. The video offers specific examples of how to plan for this inclusion across a variety of roles. Participants are asked to consider how they might use the checklists and strategies in their own programs and communities.
