New Book From SpeciaLink
Children with Disabilities
in Early Learning
and Child Care in Canada
This book, Inclusion Quality, is an urgent report
about where Canada is today with respect to the inclusion
of children with disabilities in early learning and child
care. While the federal government’s current Multilateral
Framework on Early Learning and Child Care addresses
many factors essential to the development of a strong national
system of early learning and child care in Canada, it does
not focus sufficiently on inclusion quality for children
with disabilities. Without this focus, these children, and
their families, will get left behind.
Inclusion Quality presents a thoughtful analysis of the recent work of SpeciaLink—the results of observations using the SpeciaLink Early Childhood Inclusion Quality Scale, in over 65 early learning and child care centres across Canada, and provides essential recommendations toward improving the quality of care for children with disabilities.

SpeciaLink Early Childhood Inclusion Quality
At the heart of the SpeciaLink Inclusion Quality project is the SpeciaLink Early Childhood Inclusion Quality Scale—the tool we used for the observations in the book above, Inclusion Quality.
The SpeciaLink Inclusion Scale is the tool for assessing inclusion quality in early childhood centres and for helping centres move toward higher quality inclusion of children with disabilities. Using the SpeciaLink Inclusion Scale workbook, you can produce a picture of sustainable and evolving inclusion quality in your classrooms and centres. This information is essential as more and more children with disabilities attend early learning and child care centres.
The SpeciaLink Early Childhood Inclusion Quality
Scale is available at https://capebretonbooks.com/t/specialink.
The price is $18.95.
The SpeciaLink training DVD
is also available:
It is called “How to Measure
in Child Care.” You can order
it at https://capebretonbooks.com/t/specialink.
Price $40.00, includes shipping.
"How to Measure Inclusion Quality in Child Care" is a SpeciaLink Training DVD for the SpeciaLink Inclusion Scale.
This DVD trains in the use of The SpeciaLink Early Childhood Inclusion Quality Scale. The Scale is the critical tool for assessing inclusion quality in early learning and child care centres—a major issue as more and more centres commit to including more children with disabilities.
