 Full Description: 
This is a clear and simple resource that fully explains the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and shows early childhood programs what they need to do to promote inclusion and ensure compliance with the law. Answering early childhood administrators' most pressing questions about the legal issues surrounding inclusive programs, this informative and practical guidebook gives readers everything they need to create, implement, and monitor the success of their plan for ADA compliance.

Much more than an overview of legislation, this book includes practical checklists, guidelines, and sample policy statements that programs can use to improve the physical accessibility of play areas, create parent handbooks and operations manuals, conduct program reviews, address staff development needs, and more. Every early childhood program can use this essential ADA guide as an active reference—to ensure compliance with the law and to welcome and support the full participation of children with disabilities.
