Inclusion and Early Intervention in EC - EDMT6631

Year - 2020

The establishment of positive engagement with children and families is essential in creating an inclusive environment and curriculum. This subject will explore current theories of diversity, social education and inclusion in the early childhood context. An investigation of the social and historical context of inclusion in Australia provides a framework for the discussion and focus on issues of disability, family engagement, attitudes and the promotion of interagency collaboration. Throughout this unit of study students will be encouraged to examine their own beliefs and values in the consideration of the issues above, as well as others. Further, students will look at early childhood intervention as family-cented practice when providing for children with additional needs.
