Overview

About the Product

Inclusion in Early Childhood Programs examines the education and care of children with special needs from birth through school age. The fundamental belief of the authors is that regardless what special needs a child has, they are a child and, wherever possible, should be included in programs and schools. There is brief coverage of child development theory, along with information about the barriers that exist for true inclusion at all levels—program, community, and government. The textbook comes with access to NelsonStudy, a new online platform that allows students to review key concepts through self-study practice quizzes, videos, interactive exercises, and more. This is a comprehensive resource designed to provide updated research and current trends, reflecting the challenges educators face today and provides valuable information inspiring those who read it to work towards a world of inclusivity for all.
