About GETTING READY FOR INCLUSION TODAY (THE GRIT PROGRAM) SOCIETY
The GRIT Program is an exemplary, fully-inclusive, non-profit early childhood program which assists children with special needs 2 ½ – 5 ½ years of age. Building on the family’s desires, the child’s interests and strengths and parent interaction styles, the program uses a coaching model to develop and boost an individualized program plan to best support the child’s joy of learning and development.
The GRIT Program is grounded in the values of active family involvement, community inclusion, learning through play, and use of best teaching practices. Children’s program occurs in natural settings of home, community, and kindergarten, places where they would be if they did not have a disability.
