Is your child younger than school-age?

Do you want to talk to a researcher about your experience with getting support for your child?  

The Inclusive Early Childhood Services System Project wants to learn from what you know about getting support for your child. The study hopes to learn more about how early childhood services are meeting the needs of children with “atypical development”, “special needs”, “disability”, or “gifts”.
