|The Inclusion Department at the ELC of Duval provides Warm Line services to all Child Care Providers in Duval County. The Warm Line is a service providing assistance and consultation to early care and education providers regarding health, development, disability, and special needs issues of the children they are serving.|
People with disabilities are afforded the same rights as everyone else, as covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act (1990).
The Division for Early Childhood defines inclusion as: “A value that supports the rights of all children, regardless of their diverse abilities to participate actively in natural settings within their communities. A natural setting is one in which the child would spend time had he or she not had a disability. Such settings include, but are not limited to, home and family, play groups, childcare, pre-schools, Head Start programs, kindergartens and neighborhood schools."
