Smart Beginnings 2023

The U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) hosted its Smart Beginnings 2023 webinar series, a three-day virtual mini-conference held on August 15, 16 and 17.  It provided participants the opportunity to learn about resources for supporting children with disabilities as they head into a new learning year to better support and promote developmental outcomes and educational excellence for infants, toddlers, children and youth with disabilities and their families. 

The presentations and resources shared build upon the information that was provided during Smart Beginnings 2022 virtual conference. Each focused on a specific audience. You can access the recordings below on the osepideasthatwork website. Here you will also find links to specific resources discussed.
