"All young children with disabilities should have access to inclusive high quality early childhood programs where they are provided with individualized and appropriate supports to enable them to meet high expectations."
The Pyramid Model Consortium offers suggestions in "Supporting Children & Families during a Difficult Time" (Fox, Hemmeter, Strain, Allen, Ferro, & Binder, 2016) for program leaders and practitioners in dealing with potential issues and supporting young children and families during challenging times.
An article highlighting the work of the Pyramid Plus Center has been published this month in the Young Exceptional Children journal. We are thrilled that Colorado's work has been given a national audience.
