Coordinator's Notebook, n22 1998
Young children with special needs should be served within inclusive early childhood programs. Quality Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) programs provide a model to use when developing inclusive programs for children of all ages. This theme issue of "Coordinator's Notebook" focuses on the development of inclusive ECCD programs. The journal is divided into five sections. "Inclusion: Inclusive ECCD: A Fair Start for All Children" provides a brief description of the history of attention to those who are differently-abled, defines principles of programming for inclusive ECCD programs, identifies some of the issues related to creating inclusive early childhood programs, and outlines the goals for inclusive early childhood programs. "Related Resources" presents available independent, UNESCO, World Bank, and World Health Organization titles related to ECCD. "Moving Toward Inclusion: Experience in Inclusive ECCD from Guyana, Lao PDR, and Portugal" supplies case studies of processes undertaken to create inclusive ECCD programs in many parts of the world. "International and Inter-agency ECCD Initiatives" outlines current studies, projects, programs in the ECCD field. The journal's regular feature, "Network Notes," introduces relevant new organizations and reports on activities, meetings, and the calendar of the Secretariat and of the Partners of the Consultative Group on ECCD.
