Social Emotional Early Childhood (SEEC) 

 Inclusion State Pilot Project


The State of Missouri has the highest level of school suspensions in the nation There are many areas throughout Missouri who are underserved, have minimal resources, and have an overall lack of support for teachers and childcare programs.  Many of these counties include children and families who are at-risk, who have experienced child abuse and neglect and have limited resources to support these families and childcare programs.  The Inclusion SEEC Project is a multi-tiered research-based approach that teaches social-emotional skills in which all children benefit from provided preventative strategies for children who are at-risk for social-emotional delays and help determine interventions for children exhibiting challenging behaviors.

The Backpack Connection Series was created by TACSEI to provide a way for teachers and parents/caregivers to work together to help young children develop social emotional skills and reduce challenging behavior. Teachers may choose to send a handout home in each child’s backpack when a new strategy or skill is introduced to the class. Each Backpack Connection handout provides information that helps parents stay informed about what their child is learning at school and specific ideas on how to use the strategy or skill at home. This series was developed in collaboration with Pyramid Plus: The Colorado Center for Social Emotional Competence and Inclusion and Bal Swan Children’s Center in Broomfield, Colorado.
