"Takes a topic that many preservice teachers find intimidating and makes working with children with special needs doable. The easy-to-read lists inform teachers what they need to do to begin working with children with different needs."
"Provides insightful and useful strategies for all educators, no matter what the composition of their classroom. This book offers a plethora of hands-on and practical activities presented in a straightforward, user-friendly manner."
"Professionals working with children will find the plethora of forms particularly useful and adaptable to address the assessment and activity needs of the children they work with. The recommendations address the specific needs of certain types of children as well as general recommendations that would be helpful for all children."
"This book makes inclusion a much easier way to work with children than the resource room of the past. It places the responsibility of adaptation on the teachers and the school system versus the old method of pounding a square peg into a round hole. I truly appreciated the detailed description of the learning cycle and will use it in my own lesson plans beginning tomorrow!"
The revised edition of Inclusion Strategies for Working with Young Children provides several new strategies and an expanded resource section of books, Web sites, and organizations for all educators and parents to access. Clarification and update of the INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES ACT (IDEA) makes the revised edition more useful for adults in understanding and working with children with special needs.
The new sections appearing in this revised edition include: Categories of Development, Assistive Technology, How the Brain Works, and Mind/Body/Heart Interdependence. Other additions of new content throughout the book, along with reproducible forms for class and personal use, make this edition an invaluable resource for all adults who work and or live with children.
