INTEGRATED PRESCHOOLS

WHAT IS AN INTEGRATED PRESCHOOL?

An integrated preschool setting is one in which children with disabilities are integrated or included in a classroom with typically developing children. The children with disabilities participate in all of the activities within the class and modifications are made as needed. By having the children with disabilities participate in this type of program they are provided with same age role models of appropriate behavior. This atmosphere also helps the typical developing children to be more accepting of people with disabilities.

I designed this page to help educators and parents find information about integrated preschools, the laws governing special needs, and information about specific disabilities.
