Research and practice in the field of early childhood increasingly supports the full inclusion of young children within early childhood environments. Until 2009, the field lacked a national definition for inclusion, which resulted in vast disparity among programs and practices. This disparity was further exacerbated by the historical segregation between the fields of early childhood general and special education.
The joint position statement on inclusion developed by the Division of Early Childhood of the Council of Exceptional Children (DEC) and the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) was released in 2009 and changed both the lack of a national definition as well as some aspects of this historical segregation. Consider the following definition included in the statement:
Early childhood inclusion embodies the values, policies, and practices that support the right of every infant and young child and his or her family, regardless of ability, to participate in a broad range of activities and contexts as full members of families, communities, and society. The desired results of inclusive experiences for children with and without disabilities and their families include a sense of belonging and membership, positive social relationships and friendships, and development and learning to reach their full potential. The defining features of inclusion that can be used to identify high quality early childhood programs and services are access, participation, and supports.
Reflect on the required resources provided for this Discussion, as well as the media segments featuring conversations with Drs. Amy Santos and Johnna Darragh.
