If you haven’t bookmarked the Desired Results video library yet, now is a good time. Be sure to let families know about this resource as well.
This video illustrates how inclusive practices should begin as early as possible. In the first part, Janelle describes her two year old daughter’s birth, early weeks in the NICU, and her stroke at four months old. In the second part, Janelle is joined by Lydia Rose’s child development center teacher and her early interventionist as they discuss and illustrate a range of topics including inclusion, collaboration and teamwork between general and special educators, family-centered early intervention in natural environments, coaching, embedded instruction, family leadership, and more. This video has important messages for families who are, or will be, receiving early intervention services, for current and future early intervention practitioners, and for early childhood educators.
The Desired Results access Project, Napa County Office of Education, is funded by the California Department of Education, Special Education Division.
