Overview

AN INTRODUCTION TO YOUNG CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS offers a thorough introduction to the educational policies, programs, practices, and services specific to infants, toddlers, and preschoolers who demonstrate delays and disabilities. It also offers information about youngsters who exhibit signs of being at-risk for future programs in learning and development. Through a host of proven learning techniques, a website, and additional related resources, readers are guided to a full understanding of important theoretical and philosophical foundations in serving children whose learning is delayed. These include authentic assessments, cultural sensitivity and competence, activity-based interventions, and developmentally and individually appropriate practices. The book emphasizes instructional strategies necessary for creating inclusive learning environments, and offers recommendations throughout for using technology in the learning environment.
