Team Lydia Rose: Supporting Inclusion Every Day in Every Way


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. A presentation of the California Department of Education, Special Education Division, Desired Results access Project, Napa County Office of Education. Produced by Larry Edelman.
