We all learn things at different ages. Some of us walked at nine months, most of us at around twelve months, and still some of us, many months later. The ages of common childhood milestones are all different -- except, children are expected to enter school at the same age. This one-size-fits-all model raises concern for many educators today. In accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the education of children with special needs should maximize their ability to engage in appropriate activities in a variety of settings and to interact with peers.
This series addresses issues that arise as we strive to optimize inclusive practices while meeting the individual needs of all learners in various early childhood settings. Each participant will receive the book, I Belong.
The series offers information for all those who work with and support children with special needs and are interested in these objectives:
- Exploring guiding principles useful for developing techniques for successful inclusion of children 3yrs old through kindergarten.
- Discussing some of the characteristics unique to different disabilities and how to embed IEP goals and Learning Standards through the daily routine and in the learning environment.
- Learning about strategies for successful collaboration that validate the talents and skills you and your colleagues bring to your team
