Summary

This book is dedicated to addressing the educational needs of young children with delays and disabilities, as well as those with anticipated learning difficulties. The authors take a practical approach to sharing a wealth of knowledge in this introduction to the educational policies, programs, practices, and services appropriate for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers who exhibit such characteristics. They employ educational vignettes, proven learning techniques, a website, and additional supporting materials, photographs, tables, and figures to make research-based theories and philosophical foundations take on practical meaning for the reader. New to this edition is an emphasis on instructional strategies and pedagogical recommendations necessary for creating inclusive learning environments, as well as suggestions for incorporating technology into the learning environment, especially adaptive/assistive technology.
