The aim of this study was to determine the relationships between the achievements of children, their emotional adaptation and psychophenotype maturity. New techniques have been tested, "The mood of the child" and "Psychophenotype ". A survey of 60 typically developing children and 25 children with atypical development (19 children with mild developmental delays and 6 children with mental retardation), aged from 4 to 7 years, attending inclusive and non-inсlusive kindergarten. Strong positive connections were revealed between achievements of children with "psychophenotype maturity" parameter. For children with the mental retardation there was detected an expressed phenotypic immaturity, significant problems of emotional adaptation in the inclusive groups. The authors believe that these results indicate the need for careful study of the quality of the educational process in an inclusive preschool environment.
