The goal of the text is to help teachers meet the needs of ALL young children within the primary inclusive classroom, and it accomplishes this in two ways: it provides a strong foundation of Early Childhood Education and Early Childhood Special Education as preparation for reaching a wide variety of young learners, and it then presents proven methods for adapting and modifying content area curricula.
This text, with chapters contributed by leading experts in the field, provides an overview and rationale for inclusive education, methods for early childhood education and early childhood special education, foundations in content area material (e.g. math, language arts), and instructional strategies (content specific accommodations and modifications). Because students need to understand the theoretical framework for the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to serve the needs of all young children (those who are typically developing as well as those with delays or disabilities and those from diverse backgrounds), this text will provide a resource for teaching and learning this information.

"The discussion of integrating reading/writing, mathematical concepts, science, etc. is a wonderful concept. Preservice and new teachers will be able to use the resources and recommendations to provide effective instruction for all students." -Megan Purcell, Eastern Kentucky University
"This book does an outstanding job of describing how science can be integrated into each area of the curriculum as well as outlining the benefits of doing so." -Dr. Angie Crano, University of North Carolina Greensboro
"While the field of early childhood special education includes children from birth to age eight, the materials available for children K-3 have been limited...the obvious strength of this text in its focus on children in the K-3 age group." -Ann Bingham, University of Nevada Reno
