Include Me: Bringing Early Education to Children with Disabilities


Include Me is an initiative working to increase the capacity of child care centers in the greater Richmond area to provide quality inclusive early childhood education for children with disabilities. Through this project center teachers will receive interventions in the form of trainings and consultation services throughout the year. The aim of the trainings and consultation services is to increase their skill and comfort level in providing community-based, inclusive care to young children.

Include Me is funded by seed money from the Jackson Foundation with support from the Partnership for People with Disabilities's Resource Development Board.

Major Activities

  • Conduct training and consultation for two classrooms in each of 5 centers on quality inclusive child care strategies
  • Evaluate project model through pre and post assessments for teacher attitude, interaction and classroom environment
