Measuring Inclusion in Early Childhood

If are a teacher, parent or therapist for children in an early childhood inclusive setting you may want to check out two new resources that can assist you in determining the quality of your inclusion program. The SpeciaLink Early Childhood Inclusion Quality Scale was developed in 2009 to assess inclusion quality in early childhood settings.

The Inclusive Classroom Profile was developed to assess daily classroom practices that support students with disabilities. This tool appears to be a great measurement of adult involvement with the child, social interactions of the child, communication, adapting of activities and more. You can download this assessment tool here.
