All children deserve the opportunity to play, grow, and learn alongside their peers in a supportive and inclusive environment. It not only benefits children with special needs but helps foster a community that reflects the diversity of society. In our latest episode of Community Living Out Loud, host Peter Reynolds and guests Lisa Fantauzzi and Maria Jarmillo discuss the work of Community Living Mississauga’s Early Childhood Education Resource Services Team, which supports children who have an intellectual disability in local childcare centers. Lisa and Maria share their experiences with the program, including success stories, the challenges of growing caseloads and what keeps them motivated every day.
