Beginning Together

Beginning Together ensures that the certified trainers in WestEd’s Program for Infant Toddler Care (PITC) promote information about children with special needs and quality inclusive practices.

Funded by the California Department of Education, Beginning Together moves inclusive experiences for young children with disabilities or other special needs and their families from theory to practice.

Beginning Together accomplishes the above goal through a training-of-trainers institute, a seminar on inclusive practice for community colleges, regional technical assistance activities, support to training-of-trainers institute graduates, and support of inclusive practices in other PITC activities, including a Beginning Together advanced technical assistance institute.
