The Inclusive Early Childhood Classroom is written to help teachers look at classroom design in a new way and suggests different ways of approaching activities to help children with special needs become successful.

Each chapter focuses on either a learning center, such as art or science, or a time of the day, such as snack time or dismissal, with particular attention to the needs of children who are developmentally delayed, orthopedically impaired, have autism/Pervasive Development Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, behavioral issues, motor planning problems, or visual impairments.
