Abstract: Although this research was conducted in Australian early education program classrooms, information provided is useful to educators in any inclusive early childhood classroom. Both inclusion and visual impairment are defined. Environmental factors important to the inclusion of young children with visual impairments are identified as: inclusive attitude of the teacher, attitude of the school, individualization of the curriculum, support for the teacher, parent involvement, teacher training and experience in inclusion and visual impairment, the physical environment, adult involvement, and access to vision aids and equipment.
