Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

This text is a collaborative effort, not only on the part of the authors, but also because of the contributions of the many parents, professionals, researchers, and students who have added to the growing body of knowledge about how to best serve Ay young children with disabilities and their families. It was our intention to synthesize perspectives and information from the fields of medicine, education, intervention, psychology, law, sociology, and family life for use by those who will work with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers with special needs. It was also our goal to challenge our readers to consider the future of early intervention and their role in shaping the field of early childhood special education. We hope this -text is a relevant and long-lasting resource.

The purpose of this text is to provide an introduction to early childhood professionals who plan to engage in providing services and intervention to very young children with disabilities. It is not intended as a methods text, but rather as a foundation regarding the philosophy, history, family impact, legal issues, and medical concerns that are most relevant to early services to children with exceptional needs. Though early childhood special education teachers may make up the majority of readers who use this text, the term early childhood professional is also used to address individuals in many disciplines, including health care, social work, physical and occupational therapy, child care, and those who are involved in interagency services to young children and their families.

Chapter 1 presents an overview of the guiding philosophies of the text, which will be applied and reiterated throughout the chapters. Chapter 2 reviews the history of the care of young children, and Chapter 3 focuses on the growth of special services for those with disabilities and their families. Chapters 4 to 8 provide detail on typical child development and the etiology of disabling conditions that affect the very young child with exceptional needs. Chapters 9 and 10 address how intervention and support are provided to young children and their families.

Very young children with special needs are the focus of this text, but to thoroughly understand and serve a child with disabilities, one must be knowledgeable about typical development, understand how health and genetics affect potential, and recognize the influence of the child's family and environment on realizing that potential. Throughout the book, the stories of families will be provided through case studies, and special issues will be identified through close-ups, in order to provide real-life examples. The text is interdisciplinary, inclusive, and family-focused.
