Early Childhood News Director's Award
"This is an ideal resource for the teacher seeking strategies that include all students in classroom lessons and activities. This is the 'answer book' for teachers and other educators who struggle to find methods that work to create meaningful and effective accommodations for activities for kids with disabilities. The organization and straight-forward writing style make the book pick-up accessable. You can open it in the middle and immediately access and use the information. The authors crisply explain accomodation practices, enabling the reader to apply the principles in virtually any lesson plan. Parents, families, and community educators (religion teachers, recreation instructors, etc.) will find this book equally useful. EP proudly awards this book the EP Symbol of Excellence."
Exceptional Parent Magazine
"Inclusive Lesson Plans uses a seasonal framework with standard themes. In the fall, for example, lessons include 'All about me' and 'The senses.' Six to 16 hands-on activities support each theme with specific guidance on accommodations for children with disabilities. Inclusive Lesson Plans and The Inclusive Learning Center Book share a significant strength. They are both enthusiastic about helping teachers building meaningful preschool experiences for every child - and offer tools to help every teacher succeed. The introductions of both books review the basics of early childhood education. Each offers both experienced and novice teachers ideas for expanding traditional themes. Both books provide guidance on modifications and accommodations for chidren with disabilities. But most importantly, both ofer support to programs and teachers who want to make the successful inclusion of children with disabilities a hallmark of their work."
