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) Allow time for a two-week implementation of an adaptation in the early childhood setting. 


Using CARA’s Kit, Creating Adaptations for Routines and Activities, as a framework, learn to support both individuals and groups of children who are experiencing challenges in the classroom by making adaptations to the environment, routines, and activities. Learners will focus on how to conduct assessments, prioritize needs, and implement adaptations that support full inclusion for both toddlers and preschool-age children, and which apply to situations linked to Pennsylvania's Early Learning Standards.

Intended Audience: Classroom teachers, early intervention staff and others working in early childhood settings across Pennsylvania programs including Head Start, Early Head Start, Pre-K Counts, Child Care, private nursery schools and Early Intervention.
