2. Supporting Inclusive Practices

Good Overview of Several Practices - Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute

“NPDCI has developed a document, Research Synthesis Points on Quality Inclusive Practices that provides brief descriptions and supporting references for the evidence-based and promising practices that support early childhood inclusion. These practices are organized into three major sections corresponding to the defining features of high quality early childhood inclusion as described in Early Childhood inclusion: A Joint Position Statement of the Division for Early Childhood (DEC) and the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

Locate resources to support inclusion through the use of these evidence-based practices at the links provided below. Resources are organized into 4 sections: Why Do It? (the evidence-base), Read About It (books, chapters, and articles), See For Yourself (videos and demonstrations), and Find It Online (websites with additional resources). The resources provided are only a sampling of the resources available on these practices.”
