Note: this course requires completion of activities in an early childhood classroom environment. You will need to: 1) Work in or have access to an early childhood classroom/setting; 2)Start the course at the beginning of the month; 3) Allow time for a two-week implementation of an adaptation in the early childhood setting. 


The framework for this online course is CARA's Kit: Creating Adaptations for Routines and Activities. Participants will be provided with information, tools and resources to guide them through the process of making adaptations to the classroom environment, routines and/or activities that support individuals or groups of children who are experiencing challenges. Participants will conduct assessments, prioritize needs and implement adaptations in the early childhood environment, that support the full inclusion of a child and/or children in their care. Guidance for working with both toddlers and preschool-age children is provided. As participants explore various classroom situations, they will find them linked to Pennsylvania's Early Learning Standards for Toddlers and Pre-Kindergarten.
