Presented by Jeanine Coleman, PhD

Promoting inclusive early childhood environments is imperative for young children with FXS because these are the first environments that set the stage for their future education and social relationships. This presentation will identify guidelines with relevant resources for families with young children with FXS that are aligned with national early childhood special education and early intervention best practices. These guidelines will provide the opportunity to engage with families and professionals at the conference to increase understanding of the early childhood processes that are supported by federal legislation.
