Haring Center


Haring Center research has led to 50 years of innovation in early childhood and special education. Researchers work with teachers, families and communities to create new curricular approaches, instructional strategies and technological advances in education. Researchers study how approaches are adopted and used to support children and families in everyday settings. As a result of this work and the widespread dissemination of our innovative practices, countless students are receiving the education they deserve in inclusive classrooms and community programs.

All research at the Haring Center is driven by our mission to build inclusive communities that support the learning and developmental needs of children and families of all abilities and backgrounds. The transformational research conducted here informs policies and practices in inclusive education.

We welcome interdisciplinary researchers from across the university and the globe, and provide opportunities for graduate students who are training to become the next generation of researchers and faculty members in education and related disciplines.
