Mary Dickins, "A - Z of Inclusion in Early Childhood"
English | ISBN: 0335246788 | 2014 | 216 pages | EPUB | 11 MB
The concept of inclusion is complex and messy and although many definitions abound it has never been fully clarified in legislation and guidance. The purpose of this book is to consider how professionals working with young children and their families can better understand the concept of inclusion and successfully establish, examine and evaluate the building blocks and framework that should underpin inclusive practice. This book represents a genuine attempt to identify the challenges and barriers to inclusion for all children; to understand them and in some measure, to suggest how they might be overcome.This book is particularly important because:
It is based on a broad understanding of inclusion that embraces all forms of difference including race, gender, ability and class
It draws on good practice developed over the years and describes challenges for the future
It takes into account contemporary issues such as austerity measures, cuts to public services and a changing political landscape
It brings the reader up to date with current theory, analysis, controversies and debates
This book is essential reading for early years professionals and students who wish to increase their knowledge and understanding of these issues which can divide society; especially in terms of the impact on young children and their families.
