This reflection has a focus of inclusion.
Start by reading the following documents:
Watching the following video: Including Samuel through Films on Demand from the Central Piedmont Library
Next, reflect on what you learned about inclusive practices. You can think back to the ability simulation, Autism discussion, Including Samuel video, and more.
Using your reflections, write a letter to someone in the Early Childhood field or in an elected position on a topic of inclusion, focusing on a policy or action you’d like to see changed. Tell them what you know and why you believe it’s important. Be sure to use at least 3 examples and data to support your stance. This letter must be submitted for a grade, yet it is your choice if it is delivered to the recipient. Letterhead is attached to support your letter writing.
