This accessible, reader-friendly resource provides important information and helpful strategies for preschool & kindergarten teachers in inclusive environments who have little or no training in special education and assisting students with special needs. A true introductory guide to inclusive early education, Creating Inclusive Learning Environments for Young Children explains relevant terminology, illustrates how to create appropriate environments, covers building relationships among peers with and without disabilities, and explores how children with disabilities respond to stressful circumstances such as divorce or death. Additional chapters focus on working positively and productively with both families and colleagues who can offer help and support. Each chapter offers a glossary of terms and recommended books.
