As mainstream schools look to adopt more inclusive classroom experiences for children with disabilities, teaching within an early childhood setting will mean you'll encounter a diverse range of needs and abilities in the classroom.
As such, this online Early Intervention: Theory and Practice unit, provided by Open Universities Australia and delivered through Macquarie University, will help you implement inclusive teaching strategies to ensure you’re meeting the specific needs of young children with disabilities.
