Abstract or Summary
  • High-quality child care enables children to learn necessary foundational skills, but children with disabilities, compared to typically developing children, are less likely to experience high levels of classroom quality. Further, teacher’s perceptions of children with developmental delay or disability may be skewed, which may lead to a lower-quality classroom experience. This study examines ways in which toddler’s experiences in child care and teacher’s perceptions of children’s needs and behaviors vary by child developmental delay or disability status. Three toddlers with developmental delay or disability and 14 typically developing toddlers were observed, and teachers reported on perceptions of the child’s needs and behaviors. Results indicate that interactions with teachers and peers in the classroom do not vary between the two groups of children. Further, all children are experiencing classrooms of low to mid quality. Teacher’s perceptions of children’s behavior and needs vary for misbehavior and one-on-one time, such teachers perceive to spend more time handling misbehavior and less one-on-one time with toddlers with developmental delay or disability compared to typically developing toddlers. Key Words: toddlers, disabilities, child care quality, interactions, perceptions
