Principles of inclusion will be discussed and applied, with a focus on young children with autism regardless of "educational placement." This session will emphasize the importance of early interventionists supporting young children with autism in their everyday lives across a variety of settings. Strategies for supporting optimal participation in daily routines and activities, as well as ideas for facilitating play and interaction with typically developing peers, will be shared. Finally, resources for early childhood and family caregivers will be identified.
