Exceptionality, v16 n1 p18-32 Jan 2008
As stipulated in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) 2004, preschool children are provided with access to the general education curriculum when they are in settings with children without disabilities and when their learning outcomes are met in these settings. In this article, we describe how access can be achieved through a curriculum, Children's School Success, which was designed using principles of universal design for learning and specific curriculum modifications. Further, we provide quantitative and descriptive information showing that preschool children with disabilities can make gains in both academic and social outcomes using the Children's School Success curriculum. (Contains 2 tables.)
