These training suites are designed to help Head Start education staff increase their knowledge and use of highly individualized teaching strategies that can help young children participate and learn alongside their peers in inclusive learning environments. Each suite focuses on one evidence-based practice to support infants and toddlers with disabilities or suspected delays. These suites can help Head Start staff across all program settings learn new ways to modify the physical or social environment, embed learning opportunities into daily routines, create an activity matrix to plan for individualized teaching, and use routines-based assessment and planning to provide teaching in everyday activities.
Use these suites in group training settings, or as an individualized professional development experience.
