Inclusive Child Care for Infants and Toddlers: Meeting Individual and Special Needs
Caregivers naturally have concerns when a baby or toddler with special needs joins a group of typically developing children in child care. To answer those concerns, this book offers practical guidelines for providing services to children with special needs in inclusive settings.
Child care professionals will find ready-to-use Quality Check forms, parent report forms, and feeding/play schedules to help target and strengthen skills in areas where infants and toddlers need special help. Specific ideas for play activities and suggested intervention approaches also help caregivers promote healthy development in all children. And throughout the book, there is information and helpful advice on teaching responsively; meeting individual needs; feeding, diapering, toilet training, naps, and transitions; developing rapport with parents; understanding toddlers' behavior; working with IFSPs; and maintaining high standards of care.
Students preparing for careers in child care and professionals working in settings that welcome children of all abilities will find this empowering book to be both motivational and educational.
