Archived Meeting Resources
January 10, 2023

This session was presented during BUILD 2022 National Conference.

Early childhood inclusion benefits all. Children with and without disabilities, families, and communities thrive in a culture of inclusiveness and belonging. The research supports this fact and has even shown that inclusion is a critical indicator of program quality. In this session, participants learned about inclusion research, laws, policy and practices as well as the disparities that exist in access to inclusive settings based on race and category of disability. This context was brought to life through the story of how Illinois and other states are working to foster inclusion through innovative state and community strategies.
