Inclusive Early Childhood Education: Development, Resources, and Practice

Front Cover
Cengage Learning, Jan 22, 2009 - Education - 696 pages
INCLUSIVE EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION: DEVELOPMENT, RESOURCES, AND PRACTICE is a comprehensive special education resource book designed to help educators navigate the early years of teaching. Readers will continuously return to author Penny Low Deiner’s current and responsive text to assist in the diagnosis and education of special needs children with a variety of learning disabilities. The text includes a coverage of disabilities as extensive as many Introduction to Special Education courses. However, it is more than a reference book. INCLUSIVE EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION also offers guidelines, vignettes, and hands-on program planning to prepare educators to integrate children with learning disabilities into regular classroom instruction. Deiner offers guidance on how to translate annual goals into the day-to-day classroom routine. The text connects knowledge to practice by challenging young educators to implement in the classroom the information they learn. While more comprehensive works are available on individual subjects covered in INCLUSIVE EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION, the text provides educators of special needs children with a solid foundation of knowledge on which to grow their expertise.
