Innovating for Inclusion Newsletter

Welcome to the Early EdU for Inclusion Email Series!

Early EdU for Inclusion supports curriculum enhancements in community colleges that ensure enriching learning experiences for young children of all abilities and their families.

The Early EdU for Inclusion team sends periodic emails highlighting resources that benefit faculty. We hope you'll find these resources useful in your courses or interactions with students. This month's series is about curriculum modifications and includes an overall primer; successive emails will showcase the eight types of modifications.

Curriculum Modifications Primer

Curriculum modifications are small changes which make a big impact in a child’s educational journey.

The following resources showcase videos from the EarlyEdU Alliance Media library, which is home to a wealth of content that can be downloaded and streamed for educational courses, presentations, and professional development opportunities. You don’t need a library card to access so much amazing content, but you do need a membership in the EarlyEdU Alliance. Join now!


In this 3 1/2-minute video, a narrator describes curriculum modifications and provides examples of 8 types of modifications that maximize children's participation. Look for real-life examples of environmental supports (1:27), materials adaptation (1:36), activity simplification (1:50), child preferences (2:05), special equipment (2:16), adult support and peer support (2:23), and invisible support (2:43).

Curriculum Modifications Interview

An educator describes what a curriculum modification is, and then describes physical arrangements and the benefits. She goes on to describe when and why a teacher would use a modification. She ends by describing the benefits and potential outcomes for children who receive modifications.

Modifications in Action 

In this 3-minute video, teachers describe how they modify their curriculum for their children such as environmental support, child preferences, and special equipment.
