Strategies for Including Children with Special Needs in Early Childhood Settings
Edition 2 Rev ed
Publication Date 7 Oct 16
OverviewThis practical, hands-on-guide encompasses workable ideas on how to include and support young children with disabilities in all preschool classrooms. Teaching strategies and adaptations are offered by program activity rather than by disability, so you can more easily coordinate adaptations to each part of your lesson plan. The main focus is on embedding instruction within daily routines. The text incorporates simple and direct language that builds on the foundation of information learned about children without disabilities. Chapters are short and include many examples for supporting children with a variety of common disabilities such as cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, autism, visual impairment, hearing loss, and behavioral challenges. Whether you're a student working in general or special education, you will find the strategies, helpful hints, and scenarios to be useful resources when accommodating children with special needs in your current or future classroom.
