Using The Inclusive Classroom Profile for Self Reflection
March 21, 2018 9am-3pm
St. Clair County ROE, 1000 South Illinois Street, Belleville, IL

In collaboration with STARNET,  join us for the unique opportunity to explore the Inclusive Classroom Profile, a research based assessment tool designed to look closely at the ways inclusive programs accommodate the learning needs of young children with disabilities.  This workshop will explore twelve indicators of high quality inclusion as described in the Inclusive Classroom Profile. In addition to reviewing the tool, attendees will learn how to use the ICP for self-reflection and improvement of high quality inclusive practices. Attendees will have an increased understanding of the twelve quality indicators and how they relate to teaching practices in the inclusive classroom.
