Description

This course provides in-depth consideration and analysis of the critical issues, policies and evidence-based practices in the fields of inclusive and special education. Historical and contemporary policy and legislation are examined to determine how these influence both the intended and the operational curriculum. The barriers to effective classroom participation of all children such as teachers' beliefs, values and attitudes and how these influence their preschool/classroom practice and outcomes for all children are considered. Students will also explore evidence-based teaching strategies that support the participation and development of children with specific learning needs in preschools and regular classrooms.
