Children with Special Needs is a thorough introduction to the educational policies, programs, practices, and services specific to infants, toddlers, and preschoolers who demonstrate delays and disabilities. It also speaks to youngsters who exhibit signs of being at-risk for future programs in learning and development. Learning strategies make it easy for the reader to take in this wealth of information. These include educational vignettes, an Online Resource Web site, photographs, tables and figures. These learning aides, as well as additional, related resources, present such research-based theoretical and philosophical foundations as authentic assessments, cultural sensitivity and competence, activity-based interventions, and developmentally and individually appropriate practices. This new edition also makes recommendations for using technology in the learning environment and emphasizes instructional strategies necessary for creating inclusive learning environments.
