About this Unit
In 2020 this unit replaced by 102746 - Inclusive Education: Principles and Practices. Inclusion is both a right and an expectation for all children. Its effectiveness, however, depends upon teachers having the skills to facilitate the learning of children with a broad range of abilities within their educational setting. The impact of a range of additional needs on children, their families and early childhood and school settings are explored within a sociocultural framework and the implications for intervention and inclusion analysed. Collaboration, the role of teams around the child and family-centred approaches to service delivery and the paramount role of families are advocated as essential for effective early childhood intervention and inclusion.
