Building Relationships to Support All Children focuses on establishing, building, and maintaining positive relationships to support children in inclusive classroom settings. The course is divided into two main segments: 1) working in partnership which looks at the protective urges of all caregivers; and 2) exploring the principles of partnership, which provides participants with opportunities to explore and demonstrate how the principles work together to support children, families and one another. Materials provided to support the participants' work in this course include: The Division for Early Childhood’s Recommended Practices, and the PA Pre-K Early Learning Standards which are used by the learners in activities throughout the course.
The learner will be able to:
- Explore attitudes and beliefs about inclusion
- Describe the benefits of inclusion for everyone
- Describe the perceptions of disabilities and the effect on quality inclusion
- Discuss the history of developmental disabilities
