Children Together is a labor of love; a community based, non-profit organization committed to increasing opportunities for the inclusion of children with disabilities and their families in Alexandria’s quality early childhood programs. Children Together seeks to connect families of children with disabilities to quality programs as well as to link staff who serve children with disabilities with needed resources in the community.
Children Together envisions a future where children with disabilities and their families are openly welcome into quality early childhood programs in Northern Virginia. In this ideal future, the directors of early childhood programs would be knowledgeable of available community resources which support the education of children with disabilities; and all early childhood teachers would feel confident that they have the skills and support systems needed to successfully meet the special needs of all their students.
Children Together hosts semi-annual conferences every Fall and Spring on topics of interest to educators and parents. Study Groups on specific topics are also offered periodically.
