Widening the Circle: Including Children With Disabilities in Preschool Programs (Book) by Samuel L. Odom


Based on a 5-year research study conducted by the Early Childhood Research Institute on Inclusion, this book explores the barriers to and influences on inclusive education settings for young children. Topics include individualized instruction, social relationships of children with disabilities, collaborative relationships among adults, family perceptions of inclusion, classroom ecology and child participation, community participation, social policy, and cultural and linguistic diversity. Useful implications for practitioners, including suggestions for modifying activities, materials, environmental supports, and teaching strategies, are provided. (2001) (Inclusion)
