Interested in getting more involved with the Forum?

We’re looking for folks to volunteer their time and expertise for upcoming Real World Wednesdays.

What is Real World Wednesday?

Every Wednesday, we like to feature a member of the Forum on our Facebook page, inviting them to share with us some of their knowledge and experiences from the field.  These posts are designed to highlight some of the real world scenarios that early childhood caregivers and educators face, helping us start important conversations about our practice!

What we learn from these conversations is then posted to our Blog, allowing us to continually build our body of collective wisdom.

For example, our first Real World Wednesday featured Jamie Pearson, a doctoral student at the University of Illinois who studies the quality and quantity of services available for families of color who have children with autism.  We asked her, “Jamie from your real world research and experiences, can you share 3 things we should know about autism services for families of color?”  Her thoughtful response can be found here.

What would I need to do?

  • Join the conversation by “liking” our Facebook page
  • Tell us a little about yourself.  Let us know what you do, where you do it, and what you’d like to share!
  • Let us know an upcoming Wednesday that you could be available to respond to questions from members of the Forum.

How do I sign up?

If you’re interested, send us a message on Facebook or email us at
