A practical, activity-based approach to early childhood special education built on a foundation of theory and research.

 

This comprehensive text on early childhood special education emphasizes a developmental focus over a disability focus. The authors believe that children are more alike than different in their developmental processes and avoid the negative impact of labeling children with disability categorical names. The authors have produced a book that offers educators a practical and effective guide to finding learning opportunities within daily curriculum activities and routine. The current edition maintains the focus on inclusive, family-centered, real-world approaches that are also theoretically based. The text also provides ample detail related to specific intervention strategies that enhance teachers’ ability to work with young children with special needs and their families.  Readable and practical, the illustrations of techniques and strategies throughout make this text a valuable resource long after students leave their formal education.

From the Back Cover:

 

Since the first edition, this readable, comprehensive text has consistently met the needs of students seeking practical and evidence-based strategies for working with young children with special needs in a school environment. The eighth edition of Adapting Early Childhood Curricula for Children with Special Needs, continues to combine systematic instruction with naturalistic instruction embedded in daily life. This text is extremely practical and full of specific instructions derived from evidence-based practices.

Detailed, but not overwhelming, this book enhances its focus on child and family strengths, relationship-focused interventions, family-centered approaches, standards, evidence-based practices and coordinated, interdisciplinary services, all which enable students to enter their field with a wealth of knowledge, tools, and strategies for success.
