The key components of professional development include:
characteristics and contexts of the learners (i.e.,the “who”);
content (i.e., the “what” of professional development); and
organization and facilitation of learning experiences (i.e., the “how”).”

Early childhood inclusion embodies the values, policies, and practices that support the right of every infant and young child and his or her family, regardless of ability, to participate in a broad range of activities and contexts as full members of families, communities, and society. The desired results of inclusive experiences for children with and without disabilities and their families include a sense of belonging and membership, positive social relationships and friendships, and development and learning to reach their full potential. The defining features of inclusion that can be used to identify high quality early childhood programs and services are access, participation, and supports.
