The high-quality inclusive classroom provides children multiple opportunities to make choices and harness their natural interests. The session will emphasize how to create back and forth interactions while following a child’s lead to establish foundational skills of shared attention, engagement, and problem solving in the inclusive preschool classroom. Further, the session will emphasize Universal Design for Learning principles of promoting multiple ways of presenting information, engaging children in learning activities, and allowing children to respond in multiple ways. Participants may share and discuss how they consider the cognitive, communication, and sensory needs of each child; the multiple guided practices implemented when teaching; consideration of the timing of each child’s response; and presentation of content in multiple formats.
