This course will focus on supporting the development of children with diverse abilities within an inclusive environment. The Apprentice will describe best practices for creating early childhood environments that are inclusive of children with exceptionalities and implement a ‘child first’ approach. They will differentiate between a child’s progression along the continuum of development and their achievement of developmental milestones and define the process of early identification and intervention. In addition, the Apprentice will interpret current evidence based information pertaining to children with exceptionalities in order to design, implement and evaluate an inclusive early childhood learning experience following a “child first” approach.
