5 Oct 2012
Mr Richard M Gargiulo (University of Alabama at Birmingham)
This book offers a broad introduction to educational policies, programs, practices, and services appropriate for children birth through age eight with delays or disabilities and their families. It also does an exceptional job of addressing the issue of young children who are at-risk for future problems in learning and development. Through a host of evidence-based intervention and instructional techniques and additional related resources--including a website--the book guides students to a full understanding of important theoretical and philosophical foundations in serving children with delays or disabilities. These foundations include, but are not limited to, evidence-based decision making, developmentally and individually appropriate practices, a holistic view of young children and their families, cultural responsiveness, and activity-based intervention. The book emphasizes intervention and instructional strategies necessary for creating inclusive learning environments, and offers recommendations throughout for using technology in the learning environment.
