Promoting inclusive play in the infant classroom
Playful approaches to teaching and learning have the potential to support all children achieving their potential. A growing body of research suggests that playful approaches are particularly important for children with diverse learning needs and interests. This webinar will explore the importance of play for children with special educational needs. It will explore the concept of inclusive play and consider strategies for supporting the play needs and interests of all children in the infant classroom.
