Include Me From The Start

Include Me From The Start Logo

Include Me From The Start is a school based and preschool initiative for students with significant disabilities. The goal of the project is to inclusively and meaningfully educate all students with significant disabilities in general education classrooms and typical preschool settings.

Include Me consultants provide focused, on-site technical assistance for student teams, as well as parent trainings and professional development. Include Me’s focus is to increase inclusive practices and build capacity in school districts and preschools across Pennsylvania. Include Me services are provided free of charge to participating preschools, school districts, and parents.

Include Me From The Start is an initiative of The Arc of Pennsylvania. Funding for the project is provided by The Bureau of Special Education, The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, Inc. and The Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Foundation. The Arc of Pennsylvania is grateful to these funders for allowing us the opportunity to serve school age children with disabilities throughout Pennsylvania.

Our Include Me Preschool program is an initiative of The Arc of Pennsylvania and funded by The Bureau of Early Intervention Services. Without this generous support, The Arc of Pennsylvania would not be able to support children with disabilities in pre-schools across the Commonwealth.
