Including Children with Special Needs: Are You and Your Early Childhood Program Ready?
Watson, Amy; McCathren, Rebecca
Young Children, v64 n2 p20-26 Mar 2009
The authors present a checklist designed to help preschool and kindergarten administrators and teachers build confidence in their ability to be inclusive and to increase their awareness of the needs of children with disabilities. Teachers can use the checklist to prepare for the inclusion of a child with a disability. "Identifying potential barriers to inclusion allows educators to adjust the physical environment, programming, and teaching methods as needed and to seek related supports before a child with special needs joins the program."
