356. Creating Inclusive Child Care for ALL: Engaging Health, Early Intervention, Early Childhood Special Education and Early Care and Education in Data-Driven Strategies
|Date:||Monday July 16, 2018|
|Time:||3:30 PM - 5:00 PM|
Creating equitable opportunities for children with special needs to access child care is a challenge for many states and requires partnership across systems. This session offers state exemplars and strategies and discusses the use of data, including GIS mapping of child care supply and demand, to drive community-led solutions. Participants will engage in facilitated discussion to explore state examples of QRIS and quality improvement efforts as barriers/facilitators to inclusion.
