Inclusion Spotlight
June, 2020
Social Media Campaign
We want to hear from you!

During these unprecedented and transformative times, we are looking ahead to the future and the critical importance of inclusion. To raise visibility and awareness, we've launched a statewide campaign to share stories of how families, schools, and communities are including children with disabilities.

We invite you to share your inclusion success stories with the hashtag: #IllinoisIncludes, either via your own social media channels or by emailing i nclusion@eclre.org so we can share your story.

Your voice matters, now more than ever, and we hope you'll share your experiences today!
A year like no other! Summer is finally here
As we wind down this school year and settle into summer we can truly say this has been a unique school year. The challenges over the last few months have been immense. So many teachers, families, administrators and staff have quickly shifted and worked hard to meet the needs of our youngest learners.
Early CHOICES is so impressed by the commitment and dedication we have witnessed this year. Thank you for all the hard work you put into making these last few months successful learning for all your children.

Early CHOICES continues to work over the summer so as you start planning for fall please know we are only a phone call or email away. We are happy to help you in planning and supporting your teams in implementation of high quality inclusive practices.
