Including All Children Cover

Teachers, educators and program staff are generally highly committed to the inclusion of children with additional learning needs in their classrooms, preschools, childcare centres and out-of-school hours programs, but the reality check comes once a child arrives in the setting.

· Are the staff actually ready?

· Do they feel confident in managing the specific needs of this child, at this time, in this setting?

· Does everyone in the setting share the same views and values about inclusion?

Adults can often have valid concerns about inclusion such as:

· But I don’t know much about disabilities …

· I already teach a large, multi-age class. How will I support children with additional needs as well?

· What if I get something wrong?

· Will it take away from the time I spend with the other children?

This book addresses these concerns and provides realistic strategies for addressing them.
