Summary

This text is an authoritative guide for teachers, parents, and all related early childhood personnel who strive to design and implement quality programs for children who are developing normally and for those with developmental or behavioral challenges. The master teachers who have authorized this well-respected publication emphasize offering each child individualized learning opportunities that are developmentally appropriate and workable within a classroom that accommodates both normally developing and exceptional children. Particular attention is paid to including parents in the design of their children's learning programs and to the inclusion of exceptional children in the classroom setting. A current, extensive list of Web sites complements the book's content.
