Adapting Early Childhood Curricula for Children in Inclusive Settings (6th Edition)
by Ruth E. Cook
Publisher: Prentice Hall
Edition: 6 - 2003
This comprehensive book takes a non-categorical approach to preparing future early childhood teachers to help infants and young children with disabilities meet their challenges and develop to their fullest potential. The result is a versatile and compelling resource of field experience. Coverage is organized around four themes: how all young children learn, children in the context of their family, traditional developmental domains, and the need to take a synthesized view of the “whole” child. Dozens of developmentally-appropriate, activity-based strategies for adapting curriculum to suit both children and their families are provided in every chapter. For future early childhood education teachers who will work with exceptional children and need to focus on special needsrather than special labels.
