All children desire to have friends and experience a sense of belonging. However, making friends may not come easy for young children. This webinar explores how early childhood practitioners can create a culture of friendship and belonging for all children. Friendship skills and strategies to support their development in young children with and without disabilities in inclusive environments is addressed. Presenters also share ways practitioners can partner with families to support the development of friendship skills in young children.
