Description

Disability and Inclusion in Early Years Education supports practitioners in understanding and implementing inclusive practice relating to disability in early years education. Offering a detailed explanation of recent developments in the field, such as the 2015 SEND Code of Practice, it provides straightforward and accessible guidance on implementing the crucial procedures that help to promote good practice.

More broadly, the book provides guidance on creating a fully inclusive early years environment that will support all children, focusing on high-incidence needs around communication, behaviour and learning. Chapters offer a wealth of practical tools and strategies to support the inclusion of children with disabilities more effectively, covering key topics such as:

  • assessment, early identification and individualised learning
  • working with parents, carers and families
  • the key role of picture books
  • multisensory approaches to learning
  • supporting behaviour and communication

This text will be valuable reading for all early years practitioners and students who want to promote the inclusion of children with SEND in mainstream provisions.
