The three-volume Early Childhood Intervention: Shaping the Future for Children with Special Needs and Their Families is a unique, comprehensive, and much-needed examination of a critically important issue. In its pages, a diverse array of experts discuss key aspects of policies, laws, rights, programs, and services available to children today. Examinations range from historical roots to present-day considerations, such as culturally and linguistically diverse children, use of technology, and contemporary testing and teaching methods. Throughout, the most current and best available research is combined with professional and clinical experience, wisdom, values, and family perspectives. The work explores issues affecting both children with psychological disorders and those with physical challenges, such as children who are blind or hearing impaired. Coverage includes all aspects of life-skills, medicine, health sciences, education, and child welfare. Although it is focused on programs in the United States, this comprehensive set offers additional insights by including comparisons of U.S. programs and services with their international counterparts.

This volume provides a comprehensive critical analysis of the research in mathematics education for young children. The researchers who conducted the critical analysis focused on the relationship between (1) mathematics learning in the early years and domain specific approaches to cognitive development, (2) the children’s social learning and their developing understanding of math, and (3) the children’s learning in a natural context and their understanding of mathematics concepts. The work of these scholars can help guide those researchers who are interested in pursuing studies in early childhood mathematics in a specific area of study. This volume will facilitate the research conducted by both novice and expert researchers. The volume has accomplished its major goals, which consists of critically analyzing important research in a specific area that would be most useful in advancing the field and provide recommendations for both researchers and educators.

Early Childhood Curriculum for All Learners: Integrating Play and Literacy Activities is designed to teach early childhood professionals about the latest research on play and early literacy and then to show them practical methods for adapting this research to everyday classroom practices that will encourage the development of learning skills. The authors link solid, play-based research to specific developmentally appropriate practices. By combining these two areas, the text demonstrates that academic learning and play activities are highly compatible, and that children can and do develop academic skills through play. In addition, the text focuses on socio-dramatic play, a recently acknowledged, essential aspect of child-initiated play interactions. It provides specific strategies that link these interactive behaviors with the early academic skills needed for the initial primary grades. Implementation of the information presented in this book will enable children to experience a richer transition into primary education classrooms.

"This theory-to-practice, transdisciplinary book series addresses the language difficulties associated with communication disorders and developmental disabilities. Grounded in state-of-the-art research, yet practical in orientation, the volumes in this series are invaluable resources for professionals and graduate students who work with learners with language delays or communication impairment." "Profound changes in legislation, technology, and philosophy have transformed language intervention for preschool and elementary-age children with language impairments. This comprehensive book examines the developments of the past decade, analyzes research, and evaluates the efficacy of recent innovations. Chapters provide practical intervention strategies for a variety of language problems and prepare interventionists to meet the demands of the classroom by addressing topics ranging from cultural awareness to the effectiveness of computers in intervention." "This resource also expands current norms, outlining innovative approaches, proposing challenging goals, and suggesting specific research. Speech-language pathologists and students in speech-language pathology, special educators and reading specialists, and researchers and clinicians in child development will turn to this volume for its appraisal of recent changes in language intervention and its recommendations for service delivery."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
