This session focuses on the specialized activities and accommodations that can, during normal routines, be provided in inclusive settings to serve an infant or toddler with a significant disability. The session's approach is based on the belief that all staff members share the responsibility of ensuring that each child's specialized needs are met in a way that supports the child's development while nurturing relationships with the child and family. Participants explore the importance of having good communication and close collaboration with family members and with early intervention, early care and education, and other key partners in serving children and families. Participants also identify specific strategies to address challenges and barriers to effective collaboration and the inclusion of a child with a significant disability in their own programs and communities.
