Educating the typical and special needs child in an inclusive environment
Inclusion is the practice of educating and involving children with special needs in classrooms and everyday activities of their typically-developing peers. It offers an equal opportunity to all children, regardless of ability level, to receive the most beneficial academic, social and life skills necessary for future success. Inclusion helps to foster a role of leadership in many children, while encouraging others in their challenges, through positive peer encouragement. The Inclusive Preschool setting is beneficial for all children involved, as it models diversity and compassion, teaches that everyone has strengths and weaknesses, and embraces the meaning of true friendship.
