Educating Young Children with Additional Needs
Publisher: Allen & Unwin
Most young children with additional educational needs are enrolled in their local childcare centre or pre-school. Whether they have delayed or advanced skills, many will need extra support from teachers and child care workers so that they can participate fully in these settings. This book is a comprehensive guide to working with these children. It outlines how to recognize when young children have atypical needs, individualize relevant programmes for them, and make sure that they can participate socially with other children in the group. The book highlights the importance of teachers' and caregivers' responsiveness both to the children and their parents. Individual chapters explain how to identify and meet the additional needs of children with vision or hearing impairments and those with difficulties acquiring motor, daily living, communication or intellectual skills. The emphasis is on assisting those with mild to moderate difficulties in any of these domains. The particular needs of gifted children are also explored.
