Educating Young Children with Special Needs

Educating Young Children with Special Needs

First Edition

November 2002 | 336 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Most young children with additional educational needs are enrolled in their local childcare center or pre-school. Whether they have delayed or advanced skills, many will need extra support from teachers and childcare workers so that they can participate fully in these settings.

Educating Young Children with Special Needs is a comprehensive guide to working with these children. It outlines how to recognize when young children have atypical needs, individualize relevant programs for them, and make sure that they can participate socially with other children in the group. It highlights the importance of teachers' and caregivers' responsiveness both to the children and their parents.
