Recorded Observation


  • IMPACT's team of inclusive childcare specialists assists program administrators with knowledge and resources to create a welcoming environment for all children and families. We can help you implement inclusive education practices and procedures, such as writing an inclusion statement for your parent handbook, or making sure new staff receive training during onboarding to support children with challenging behaviors.
  • IMPACT can help you create care plans (for children who have allergies, dietary accommodations, take medication, use medical equipment, etc.) and learn how to implement universal developmental screeners such as the Ages and Stages Questionnaires (ASQ-3 and ASQ-SE).
  • IMPACT supports directors with leadership skills so that you have the confidence to coach and support your staff on best practices for effective inclusive early childhood education.


  • IMPACT provides resources, strategies and coaching to support teachers in offering a high-quality learning experience for all children. 
  • IMPACT helps teachers individualize instruction, partner with families, and create a healthy and safe classroom environment. 
  • IMPACT also helps customize strategies for children with challenging behaviors, developmental delays, or trauma histories. Our consultants may suggest sensory strategies, visual supports, or tools for self-regulation, that benefit all children in the classroom. 


  • When a child has more specific needs, IMPACT – with parent consent – supports teachers to create behavior support plans. We help you balance implementing individualized supports for one child while meeting the needs of all children in the classroom. 
  • IMPACT offers specialized observations and early childhood mental health consultations. 
  • IMPACT helps you navigate supporting families through the evaluation and assessment process to determine if early intervention or therapeutic services may be helpful for their child.  If children are already receiving services, we help teachers identify classroom strategies to work toward IFSP or IEP goals.

In addition to live virtual observations, you have the option of utilizing recorded classroom observations. Consultation practice and methods used (e.g. reflective practice, suggested strategies) will be the same when live observations or recorded observations. Please speak to your Inclusion Specialist to determine which would be best for you. 

Benefits of Recorded Observations vs. Live On-Site Observations:

  • Capture every classroom moment, so you never miss a behavior or learning opportunity. 
  • None of the distractions caused by having a new person present in your classroom. 
  • Scheduling flexibility allows you to capture any behavior at any time.
  • Access multidisciplinary early childhood education experts, wherever you are.
  • An easy-to-use secure file transfer system makes connecting with your consultant simple
  • And many more benefits!

Our Satisfied Customers

Here’s what one early learning teacher had to say about IMPACT consultants:
"My favorite part of IMPACT services is being able to have someone to trust and someone who understands the behaviors in my class, and that I am doing my best to help the students."
A childcare director who received IMPACT services said: 
"IMPACT is able to break down ideas into easy to learn skills and knowledge for general ed teachers to use in their classrooms.”

We’re excited to share with you some of the changes our partner programs have reported:

Increased Access
Ninety percent of directors surveyed are more likely to enroll a child with disabilities as a result of receiving IMPACT services. 

Reduced Expulsion
Ninety-three percent of directors surveyed are more likely to keep a child with challenging behaviors enrolled as a result of receiving IMPACT services.
Inclusion specialists with various backgrounds and experience provide you with inclusive education consultation services.
After receiving IMPACT services, early learning educators are more knowledgeable about strategies for supporting children's unique needs and challenging behaviors, able to see the value in reflecting on their practice as an educator or director, and are better equipped to independently problem-solve and implement new strategies to support children.
