Early Childhood Special Education: Birth to Eight is now available in the 4th edition. The 4th edition expands coverage of pre-academics and academics, responding to No Child Left Behind and IDEA 2004. The five key areas of development: communication, physical, cognitive, social/emotional, and adaptive, all include updated coverage. This is the only text on the market that addresses all of early childhood, age birth through eight, and all of early childhood special education. The text also takes into consideration that early childhood special education is a field driven by federal law, and contains complete coverage of those laws. Each chapter has opening questions, ending questions, and activities to help the student learn and retain the information. There is a full chapter devoted to research, and an online companion that serves to supplement the text and offers up to the minute content updates. The student will appreciate the outstanding readability of this updated, authoritative text.
