Inclusive Early Care & Education

  • The Value of Inclusion

    When students with disabilities are provided appropriate instruction and supports, they can learn grade-level general education curriculum, communicate in ways that are commensurate with their same-age peers without disabilities, have meaningful social relationships, and graduate from high school—college and career ready.

  • SWIFT offers school, states and districts the ability to build capacity to scale up and sustain new practices for schoolwide inclusive reform in urban, rural and high-need schools in grades K-8 for students with disabilities.
