The early childhood workforce plays a critical role in successfully including children with disabilities in early childhood programs. However, as noted in the Policy Statement on Inclusion of Children with Disabilities in Early Childhood Programs released by the Departments of Education and Health and Human Services (HHS), there is large variability in the training, education, and expertise of the early childhood workforce to effectively support inclusion. Presenters will discuss current issues related to workforce development and highlight training programs at University Centers for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities.
