Spotlight on California: Creative Inclusion Program Options
The SEEDS Project developed the following stories to highlight the efforts of four preschool programs providing exemplary models of system change efforts to increase inclusive options for young children with disabilities. The stories provide a glimpse into the process by which each program generated new ideas to influence change in their communities serving young children. Although each program offers a distinct approach to increasing inclusive opportunities in their locales, there are key indicators evident across programs. With the interagency collaborative approach as a framework, the stories that unfold capture each program’s people and efforts to better serve all children in California communities. These considerations are reflective of interagency collaborative practices (Interagency Collaboration Handbook, 2007).
