Lessons for Early Childhood Professionals

Bridging the gap between child development and strategies for inclusion, this powerful volume will help early childhood practitioners and pre-service teachers feel better equipped to meet the needs of all the children in their early childhood setting. Each chapter introduces you to a child (ages birth to 8 years) with one or more special needs, including Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Turner Syndrome, ADHD, Emotional/Behavioural Disorders, Apraxia, Down Syndrome, Giftedness, and Juvenile Diabetes.

Advocating a holistic view of working with children, each profile includes:
A description of the child
An interview with a family member or early childhood professional describing essential facts and historical incidents in the child’s life
An epilogue updating the status of the child
Information for educators about the special needs covered in the profile
Hints for success-teaching strategies for working with children in inclusive classrooms
Discussion questions for the classroom
Resources for educators and parents
Plus, an appendix with guidelines for an IEP (Individualized Education Program)

“Children with Special Needs is a very special, innovative, and welcomed book. The stories it tells about real children vividly teach us that we must pay attention to the whole child and that particular disabilities are only one part of who a child is. I strongly recommend this book.”
Louise Derman-Sparks, Co-director, Early Childhood Equity Alliance, Human Development faculty, Pacific Oaks College
