For Introduction to Special Education courses, Early Childhood Special Education courses, and Early Childhood Intervention courses.

For over thirty years, Young Children with Special Needs has provided the field with an in-depth treatment of early childhood special education. This classic, edited book offers broad-based coverage of all aspects of special education for the young from a theoretical-developmental perspective. In the Fifth Edition, the authors continue to provide an exceptionally thorough discussion of how children develop and what can go wrong while giving future special education teachers a solid "knowledge-content-applications" approach from which to teach children with special needs from birth to 5 years old.  Significant attention is paid to core issues including special education's historical foundations, the growth and development of the discipline, working with families, assessment and intervention, the use of technology, and cultural competency. Readers will appreciate the revised and reorganized content of the entire text, integration of diversity issues throughout the text, integrated case studies in each chapter, a new user-friendly appearance, helpful instructional and study aids, and standardized terminology for ease of learning. Interesting, appealing, practical and inspiring, Young Children with Special Needs, Fifth Edition, retains its classic status and will continue to be the best resource for preparing the future educators of our young.
