OCDEL’s Reduction of Expulsion and Suspension in Early Childhood Programs in Pennsylvania – What it Means for Children with ASD

Wednesday, August 8, 2018 -
1:15pm to 3:30pm

Effective July 1, 2017, all four bureaus of the Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) implemented an announcement to provide guidance to early learning programs in PA who receive funding from OCDEL. The purposes of the announcement are to raise awareness of the seriousness of suspension and expulsion of young children from their early learning settings, and to provide support for reducing these actions. This session will provide information for families and service providers about the expectations of the announcement and the supports that OCDEL is making available to all children and families, including children with ASD.
