Abstract/ Summary

Inclusive early childhood programs are built upon a foundation of developmentally appropriate practice (DAP) and consider individualized approaches that benefit all children. Inclusive programs welcome ALL children, including children with disabilities, and provide opportunities for each child in the group to participate, learn, and truly belong. Care and education professionals consider the needs of all children when planning, implementing, and evaluating the program.
