The South Carolina Child Care Inclusion Collaborative is pleased to announce that we will be offering a scholarship for a 3-hour Summer Graduate course entitled “Introduction to Inclusive Practices for Young Children with Disabilities.” This special course is designed specifically for individuals in the early care and education system who provide oversight and/or training and technical assistance to child care programs in South Carolina (e.g., licensing staff, ABC quality staff, certified trainers and TAPs with SC Endeavors).
Students participating in this experience will earn 3 graduate credit hours upon successful completion of course requirements. This course will introduce students to the concept of inclusion in early childhood settings and will provide research-supported strategies that support children with disabilities/developmental delays in general education settings.
