Inclusion Trainings The trainings found on this page have been developed by the Department of Children and Families (DCF) for the purpose of informing, supporting and assisting the important work that our child care programs are doing toward including children with special needs. Trainings/Modules Wisconsin UNITES: Understanding the Need for Inclusive Training and Educational Support This 5-part training series was created with support from Wisconsin's Race to the Top - Early Learning Challenge grant and includes information from Federal, State, and other research supported sources. The Wisconsin UNITES modules are intended to be a self-guided training series for child care administrators, providers, and teachers interested in supporting children with special needs throughout the work they do. The series begins broadly, by providing information about the legal history and Federal policies that form the foundation for inclusion, but as the series continues, the information becomes more program-focused, providing the trainee with functional tools and practices to support inclusion.
