Inclusion Forum, v1 n1-2 1993
These two newsletters focus on two issues concerning full inclusion for young children with disabilities: the debate over developmentally appropriate practice (DAP) in inclusive preschool classrooms, and optimal classroom environments for inclusive early childhood settings. The first newsletter includes: a review of three articles addressing DAP; a description of First CHANCE (Children with Handicaps Assisted and Nurtured in Childcare Environments), which is a federally funded model inservice project to support child care providers and educators implementing inclusive practices; a description of a technical assistance project on preventing severe challenging behavior in preschool children; and a summary of principles advocated by the Community Integration Project. The second issue includes: practical suggestions from the literature for maximizing children's engagement in play and social interaction; a description of the Family Child Care Integration Project (which trains family home care providers to include children with special needs); a description of Project Coach Outreach (which provides training in coaching and consultation skills to increase inclusive, community-based services for preschoolers with disabilities in Mississippi); and suggestions from the Education Home Model Outreach Project.
