Providers Serving Children with or without Special Needs

What is Inclusion?

Inclusion is more than the presence of children with disabilities or other special needs in early childhood programs; it is the full and active participation of all children and their families, whether typically developing, or with disabilities or other special needs in community activities, services, and programs. Support, accommodations, or modifications, when needed, are provided appropriately, to ensure full, active participation for all children. One indicator of a high quality early childhood program is successful inclusion of children with special needs.
