While current teaching practices in the field of special education are often based on correcting children's "deficits," the High/Scope educational model builds on and maximizes their strengths and abilities, recognising each child's individual needs and developmental differences. I Belong includes practical strategies and real-life examples of the authors' applications and adaptations of the High/Scope Curriculum in a variety of preschool settings serving children with special needs. The elements of the High/Scope daily routine, with specific ideas for accommodations for special needs children, are covered in depth. Throughout the book, the authors address the issue of integrating curriculum and therapy and detail how the High/Scope Curriculum can facilitate the process of meeting Individual education Program (IEP) goals.
