About KIT

Kids Included Together (KIT.org) is the national leader in disability inclusion and behavior support. We provide engaging online (KIT Academy) and on-site training, innovative consultations, expert policy and standards development, and empowering coaching that gives people who work with children a "want to, can do, and will do" attitude toward welcoming kids with disabilities and other diverse needs.

KIT training breaks down barriers to disability inclusion by lowering stress and building confidence in child and youth-serving professionals working in childcare and youth development programs such as before and after school programs, US Military Child and Youth Programs, Head Start, Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCAs, and AlphaBest Education to name a few.
