INCLUSIVE EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION also offers guidelines, vignettes, and hands-on program planning to prepare educators to integrate children with learning disabilities into regular classroom instruction. Deiner offers guidance on how to translate annual goals into the day-to-day classroom routine. The text connects knowledge to practice by challenging young educators to implement in the classroom the information they learn. While more comprehensive works are available on individual subjects covered in INCLUSIVE EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION, the text provides educators of special needs children with a solid foundation of knowledge on which to grow their expertise.
