Summary

This helpful and practical book for teachers, parents, and caregivers of young children with developmental disabilities is a must-have resource that stresses the importance of effective instructional strategies and how these strategies can be embedded into an inclusive classroom. The NAEYC guidelines for developmentally appropriate practice are discussed, as well as specific information about special education laws. Useful information and strategies to work effectively with the parents of children with disabilities are offered, highlighted with a special focus on voices from the parents. There is more information about cultural diversity in this edition to help shape and apply the material in a diverse world. The appendices cover important information for both teachers and parents, with a selected list of screening tools and assessment instruments, a pre-school profile, sources of information, support, and training material for teachers and parents, and examples of how the parent can effectively interact with the children.
