Bal-Swan Program Evaluation

Associated Faculty: Elizabeth Steed, Michael Barla
External Partners: Broomfield Early Childhood Council, Bal-Swan Early Childhood Center
Focus: Research and Evaluation
About the Partnership: The partnership includes conducting a program evaluation of their early learning center's activities and efforts toward the inclusion of young children with disabilities and their families. The program evaluation is focused on program process rather than program outcomes and specifically focuses on the process of inclusion at Bal Swan. A mixed-methods design is being used to collect information from multiple informants, including teacher observations, classroom rating scales, teacher surveys, family focus-groups, and brief interviews with children.
