A – Z Of Inclusion In Early Childhood

This book explores the key themes in inclusion through an A – Z approach covering key concepts, theories / theorists, and figures. The concept of inclusion is complex and messy and although many definitions abound it has never been clarified in legislation and guidance. Consequently there is confusion about what constitutes inclusive practice and how best to promote and implement it. The broad definition on which this book is based embraces all aspects of difference including race, ethnicity, gender and ability. A key theme is focus on the process of identifying, understanding and breaking down the barriers to participation and belonging (in accordance with the Early Childhood Forum definition of inclusion); suggesting how they might be addressed and signposting useful resources and reading for further information and support. Sweeping changes in the early years sector mean that the re-examination of basic inclusive principles, policy and practice is timely.
