What Do We Do?
The PELE Center is devoted to improving outcomes for young children with special needs, their families and those who serve them. In service to this overall goal we:
- Conduct rigorous research to examine better ways of supporting children’s development
- Assist schools in replicating evidence-based practices in inclusive settings
- Work with states to adapt, scale-up, and sustain the Pyramid Model, expand high-quality inclusive options and eliminate suspension and expulsion practices
- Provide training opportunities nationwide for students, professionals and family members
