New Possibilities: Using Evidence-Based Practices That Support Inclusion – An exciting new professional development opportunity!
On May 1-2, 2014, the Division for Early Childhood (DEC) of the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) and the Vermont DEC will offer a two-day professional development institute designed to strengthen the daily practices used by professionals to support infants, toddlers, and young children of diverse abilities in inclusive settings.
If you’re interested in a small, focused professional development opportunity that features outstanding presenters, new content, in-depth learning experiences, and a lovely setting (Burlington, VT) at a reasonable price, please consider registering for this event while space is still available.
For details on content, presenters, and logistics, please see the New Possibilities Institute overview 11-13. For specific questions about the content, please email Camille Catlett (firstname.lastname@example.org).

All students benefit from family engagement in their education, but children with disabilities often require a greater degree of family involvement and advocacy than their peers without disabilities in order to be assured of receiving the same level of instruction as the general student population. In addition, special education teachers and families of students with disabilities often face a competing set of demands that can make it difficult to develop positive home–school partnerships. The Harvard Family Research Project compiled this resource guide to help family members and special educators establish a comfortable and effective partnership in service of promoting successful outcomes for children with disabilities. It highlights research reports, journal articles, examples of best practices, and tools that suggest methods for developing productive collaborations so that educators and families can, together, ensure better services for children in their care.
NJ Early Intervention System’s mission is to enhance the capacity of families to meet the developmental and health related needs of children birth to age three who have delays or disabilities by providing quality services and support to families and their children.
