"Clear, non-technical writing is exactly what I search for in every text that I examine, and I examine nearly every new early childhood special education text that is published! The writing style is one of this text's greatest strengths. Concepts are explained clearly and concrete examples and direct application suggestions support the ideas being discussed. It would be very difficult to find a text that is written more clearly." - Ellen M. Lynch, M.Ed, Ed. D., University of Cincinnati, Ohio
"Appropriate research is included to support the content of the text. The amount and depth of the research is just the right fit for a text used at the community college level. I especially liked the brain research included in the second chapter." - Amy Huffman, MA, BS, Professor, Early Childhood Education Guilford Technical Community College, North Carolina
"The text is student friendly - it is written at an appropriate reading level and is interesting for students. There are ample thoughtful, believable examples to explain most concepts and illustrate the points presented by the authors. The stories of children, families and professionals woven throughout the text are engaging and interesting. I like the specific strategies and tools for observation and intervention that are included in the text." - Linda Anderson Welsh, M.A. Professor of Child Development at Austin Community College, Austin, Texas
