The book provides 13 early childhood inclusive education best practices, which represent a checklist of essential components (or indicators) of quality early childhood inclusive education. To determine current level of implementation of best practices, readers are instructed to rate the degree to which each indicator occurs in their school. Directions are provided on how to calculate and interpret the total score, mean score, and range of scores. Each of the best practices interrelate and build upon one another to achieve the overarching goals of access, participation, supports, and success for all young children. The data derived from using the checklists can be used to plan for continuous program improvement.
