The California Department of Social Services is excited to announce that we are partnering with WestEd to offer a free expanded virtual webinar series on inclusion.
This training is for all who wish to support inclusion and inclusive practices in their child care and development program, child care home, or in programs they support.
Using the book and accompanying video series, Inclusion Works! Creating Child Care Programs that Promote Belonging for Children with Disabilities, participants will receive training with optional follow-up technical assistance sessions after each workshop to enhance implementation.
This series will offer a strong foundation in inclusive practices, helping participants develop a plan of action for implementing ideas in their settings. Participants will also be assigned Inclusion Liaisons who will consult with them following each webinar.
All sessions will be simultaneously interpreted into Spanish and all materials will be available in Spanish.
This trio of workshops builds on one another and work best when taken as a series.
