Inclusive Classroom Profile

In response to a lack of available, validated instruments designed specifically to measure the quality of classroom support provided for children with disabilities in inclusive settings, the Inclusive Classroom Profile (ICP), a structured observation rating scale, was designed to assess the quality of inclusive classroom practices in pre-k programs. The development of the ICP was modeled after the ECERS-R and was informed by national research and professional recommended practices within the field of early childhood inclusion. It has been validated in the UK and found to have good reliability, factor structure and construct validity (Soukakou & Sylva, 2010).
