Every Child Belongs: Welcoming Children with Special Needs
To be an effective teacher, remember that regardless of individual needs, children are first and foremost children -and best practices for young children are best practices for all young children (NAEYC, 2017) All children can learn in a developmentally appropriate classroom along side their peers. Many children with special needs will benefit from simple accommodations in a natural inclusion environment.
