To order the Enhanced Pearson eText packaged with the loose-leaf version, use ISBN 0134019415. Here are practical, realistic curricular adaptations for ensuring successful inclusion of students with special needs. This highly readable, well researched, and current resource uses a developmental focus, rather than a disability orientation, to discuss typical and atypical child development and curricular adaptations, and encourage the treatment of students as children first, without regard to their learning differences. This integrated but non-categorical approach assumes that children are more alike than different in their development, and avoids the negative impact of labeling children with disability categorical names. The inclusive focus assumes that attitudes, environments, and intervention strategies can be accepted so that all young children with special needs can be included. Combining systematic instruction with naturalistic instruction embedded in daily activities, Adapting Early Childhood Curricula for Children with Special Needs, 9/e provides numerous how-to strategies derived from evidence-based practices, making it invaluable as a text today and a resource to take into the classroom tomorrow. Future professionals get examples of practical, realistic curricular adaptations that make inclusive education successful; see how to deal effectively with families and others by developing essential skills in listening, communication, conflict resolution problem solving, and biases and prejudices. Unique to this text is a section including practical recommendations for working effectively with paraprofessionals. Comprehensive without being overwhelming, the book encourages reflective practice.
