Our Resources

In addition to the training and technical assistance available through SPAN's NJ Inclusive Child Care Project, there are other resources to support the inclusion in special needs child care.

Welcome to the New Jersey Inclusive Child Care Project

Inclusive education is an attitude of acceptance of difference, not a classroom placement. It is a value of diversity that extends to ALL children.

Welcome to the New Jersey Inclusive Child Care Project (NJICCP) The NJ Inclusive Child care Project (NJICCP) is one of several projects housed at the Statewide Parent Advocacy Network (SPAN). NJICCP is supported by a grant from the NJ Department of Human Services, Division of Family Development. We are excited to be working with the NJ Early Learning Training Academy (ELTA) at Rutgers University and all the Grow NJ Kids Partners. For more information, contact the project directly at (973) 642-8100 Ext:108 or for more information on the NJICCP’s upcoming trainings or Events follow us on Twitter @NJICCP
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 if the Vocational Rehabilitation Act prohibit discrimination by child care and after-school care providers against children with special needs. Many child care providers, after-school care providers and families are unaware of the provisions of these laws or how to effectively include children with special needs.
