Key Benefit: This book is designed to actively engage early childhood practitioners in a participatory process of problem-solving regarding the inclusion of young children with developmental challenges in general early childhood classrooms. Key Topics:Based on a developmental approach highly relevant for the inclusive model, the premise of the text supports that implementing appropriate strategies includes, but is not limited to, the knowledge of children's characteristics and developmental curriculum, and deliberation on a child-by-child basis of those factors which appear to make a difference for each child. The non-categorical approach of the book is based on patterns of development and characteristics that is highly relevant for those working with young children who may be eligible through "developmental delays" rather than categories. Focus on universal design for learning, throughout every chapter, provides a beneficial perspective that will address the needs of all children. The text also features: an ongoing assessment model with consideration of how each child responds to intervention; practical research-based strategies and examples in a range of curricular areas and can be easily applied in the educational setting; a strong focus on application; and comprehensive resources in every chapter for practitioners at all levels of teaching. Market:Written for pre-service professionals and practicing practitioners who work with young children with exceptionalities in general education classrooms.
