What is inclusion in early childhood education?
As part of inclusion in early childhood, children with disabilities are educated and cared for in the same environment as their typically developing peers. The daily activities and routines of children with and without disabilities are the same in an inclusive program.
Children with disabilities are more likely to be successful in regular early childhood inclusion settings with appropriate supports, accommodations, and modifications as a result of participating with their peers who are not disabled.
What are examples of inclusion?
All learning styles and abilities are welcome in an inclusive classroom. Such a classroom could include gifted students, auditory learners, visual learners, students with disabilities like ADHD, students in wheelchairs, and students with executive function issues.
