an inclusive and equitable community
We are committed to creating an inclusive and equitable community by addressing ongoing inequities in access, service delivery, and outcomes.
The EEU Staff is committed to creating a more inclusive world by being life-long learners, celebrating diversity, focusing on children and their families, & bringing joy to our community.
The Experimental Education Unit (EEU) is part of the Haring Center for Inclusive Education, located on the University of Washington’s Seattle Campus. The EEU offers a comprehensive early childhood school community that provides inclusive education to children with and without disabilities. This community consists of scholars, professionals and university students who conduct important research and refine new techniques to hone their teaching skills.
All EEU programs promote the development of children’s cognitive, motor, communication, and social interaction skills by means of educational and therapeutic interventions most appropriate for each child. These programs always include typically developing children and children with various developmental delays or disabilities. All classrooms are managed by teams of diverse professionals, which include the head teacher, instructional assistant, speech and language pathologist, occupational therapist, physical therapist, nurse and other appropriate staff.
The EEU’s model combines practical research, hands-on training and direct service to children from infancy through kindergarten. Our program is committed to promoting the development of children’s cognitive, motor, communication, and social interaction skills giving them the necessary foundation for learning in elementary school and beyond.
