This text takes the perspective that young children are resilient and that general education teachers can make a difference with those who have unique needs for social, emotional, and academic support. It guides teachers in understanding early risk characteristics in young children who have not been diagnosed as having a disability, and provides effective intervention strategies, tools, and authentic examples to facilitate success in school settings.
