- Adaptations of Space, Materials, and Equipment
- Adult Involvement in Peer Interactions
- Adults’ Guidance of Children’s Free-Choice Activities and Play
- Conflict Resolution
- Relationships between Adults and Children
- Support for Communication
- Adaptation of Group Activities
- Transitions between Activities
- Family-Professional Partnerships
- Monitoring Children’s Learning
The in-depth ICP evaluation process gives you the rich information and insights you need to:
- assess your program’s current inclusive practices
- establish a baseline for measuring future progress
- apply recommended inclusive practices for young children
- guide quality improvement efforts by linking assessment data with instructional decision-making
- tailor professional development to teachers’ specific needs

Introduction to the Inclusive Classroom Profile
The webinar provides a general overview of the ICP, including basic information on administration and scoring.
How it works
For accurate results, the ICP is conducted by a trained outside observer, such as a technical assistance professional or administrator. The observer conducts the three parts of the ICP: a classroom observation scheduled during everyday routines; a face-to-face interview with the teacher; and a documentation review of the program’s policies, screeners and assessments, and child intervention plans.
