Summary

Early Childhood Special Education: Birth to Eight is now available in the 4th edition. The 4th edition expands coverage of pre-academics and academics, responding to No Child Left Behind and IDEA 2004. The new edition also offers more practical suggestions, including teaching techniques for the primary grades. The five key areas of development: communication, physical, cognitive, social/emotional, and adaptive, all include updated coverage. This is the only book on the market that addresses all of early childhood, age birth through eight, and all of early childhood special education. The book also takes into consideration that early childhood special education is a field driven by federal law, and contains complete coverage of those laws. Other areas of importance that are covered in the book are technology, working with families, and evaluation and assessment. Each chapter has opening questions, ending questions, and activities to help the reader understand and retain the information. There is a full chapter devoted to research, and an online companion that serves to supplement the book and offers up to the minute content updates. The reader will appreciate the outstanding accessibility of this updated, authoritative reference.
