After a successful and engaging presentation at the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) in Minneapolis, MN this past June, Dr. Patricia Blasco and Dr. Cindy Ryan will present the Pearls and Pitfalls of a Blended Early Childhood/Early Intervention/Early Childhood Special Education (EC/EI/ECSE) program at the Project Director’s Meeting, Office of Special Education Programs in Washington, DC on July 23, 2014. The presentation is based on their joint project: Project PIECE (Promoting Inclusion in Early Childhood Educators), a federal grant program to recruit underrepresented students to complete a Bachelor's degree with a teaching authorization in inclusive Early Childhood (birth-4th grade) and an EI/ECSE endorsement. These students will work in inclusive settings with young children who have disabilities upon completion of the program.
