Filled with tips, tools, and strategies, this book is the comprehensive, practical toolbox preschool administrators need to implement early childhood inclusion through systems-level change. Inclusion is clearly linked with better outcomes for young children - but recent reports from the US Department of Education show the practice has grown by just 5% over the past 27 years. This is the how-to book preschool administrators, school leaders, and child care directors need to step up the progress of early childhood inclusion through big-picture, systems-level change. Shaped by feedback from a nationwide survey of IDEA Part B Coordinators who shared their real-life inclusion challenges, this is your comprehensive toolbox of problem-solving tips, evidence-based practices, and practical checklists and handouts. You'll learn how to overcome the challenges to a high-quality inclusive program, and you'll create a solid action plan for building and maintaining a successful program where all children learn and grow.
