Focuses on children from birth to age five-young children generally referred to as infants, toddlers, and preschoolers-who are at-risk for school success due to such factors as congenital disorders, developmental problems, and environmental factors such as poverty, abuse, and cultural and linguistic differences. This text explores the current issues in the field of inclusion: family issues, assessment practices, and cultural diversity. The authors provide a solid, comprehensive, and well-researched text to introduce students to the field of early childhood special education.
