This month the EIEC SIG is kicking off a series that is dedicated to Inclusive Early Childhood Program Models in which early childhood intervention supports and services to infants and young children with disabilities are provided in programs that are inclusive: that is, programs in which the majority of children are typically developing, and the children with disabilities receive services and accommodations embedded in developmentally appropriate classroom routines and activities.

In this month's webinar we are highlighting the Waisman Early Childhood Program.

Head shot of Joan L. Ershler, PhD

I have a long-standing interest in young children's development and learning, and ways in which we can facilitate both in children with varying abilities, especially through play-based strategies in inclusive programs. My career has included teaching young children with special needs; teaching at the university level; providing pre-professional training in early childhood education; and consulting with Head Start programs. Since 1992, I have been the director of the Waisman Early Childhood Program, an inclusive program for approximately 90 children, a third of who have a developmental disability or special education need.
