Together is Better! Environmental Teaching Practices to Support ALL Children’s Participation

Conference Year: 

2015

Primary Speaker name: 

Participation happens when a child successfully engages in a routine or activity with only the amount of adult support as needed by most children. Environmental practices impact child participation indirectly by modifying or adapting the structural environment rather than by directly targeting skill development as does instructional teaching practices. Learn about the foundations of environmental teaching practices, how they support participation and discover a practical tool designed to aid educators to promote the participation of all children in the full early childhood curriculum.
