Indicators of High Quality Inclusion

The inclusion indicators are designed support state and local program leaders to examine and implement strategies that strengthen their capacity to provide high quality inclusive options in their communities. The goal of the initiative is to improve and increase inclusive opportunities for young children with disabilities ages birth through five and their families, through system and practice refinements. The indicators can be used to identify gaps and strengths with the goal to increase access to high quality programs that include and actively support the participation of children with disabilities.

These address inclusive policies and practices at the state, community, local program, and early care and education environments levels.

Created in partnership with the ECTA Center and cross-sector partners.
