Overview of both the process and outcomes of a current early childhood program located in the Midwest regarding inclusive education for preschool learners 3-5 yrs. of age that have a diagnosis of autism. I will be discussing the two new tools utilized in the research study and the preliminary results found that will be published in my dissertation. These tools that measure both process and outcomes have never been utilized before in this field. By the end of the session, participants will be able to a) understand the effects of Leaders & Practitioners beliefs, feelings & behaviors on teaching preschool learners with autism in inclusive settings.. b) explain the barriers of inclusive practices c) Discuss new strategies/tools that will assist in changing mind sets and the "inclusive" culture of schools.
