Successful Inclusion Strategies for Early Childhood Teachers – Cynthia G. Simpson, PhD, Laverne Warner, PhD
Proven and practical advice for early childhood teachers in inclusive or mixed-ability classrooms
With increasing emphasis on inclusive classrooms, primary and elementary school teachers can use the information included in Successful Inclusion Strategies for Early Childhood Teachers to build a supportive, caring, learner-driven environment that takes into account the needs of all students.
Covering topics from incorporating the needs of students with a variety of special needs, to writing or modifying curriculum that differentiates for students of varying abilities, this book offers field-tested strategies for teachers in a concise, friendly format. The authors also provide an overview of how special education law affects inclusive classrooms.
The book provides multiple vignettes describing special needs, including autism, ADHD, visual and hearing impairments, and developmental delays most often found in inclusive classrooms so teachers can match strategies to their students. The authors also discuss strategies for collaborating with parents and provide a detailed resource guide for teachers new to inclusion classrooms.
