Understanding how to reach and teach children with special needs can be a challenge. Whether a child has ADHD, autism, a sensory processing disorder, a physical disability or a learning disability, our special education curriculum and resources can help. Research has shown that early intervention strategies can have a significant impact on improving developmental outcomes of children with disabilities. Our authors, occupational therapists and experts in the field, have compiled thousands of activity ideas to support parents and teachers working with infants and toddlers with special needs.
Whether you are seeking new special needs curriculum ideas or advice on managing challenging behaviors in an inclusive classroom, our books for preschool and early elementary classrooms offer practical advice that you can implement to teach students effectively. We also offer resources on developmental observation and assessment that can help you monitor and document a child’s progress for compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
Teaching Infants, Toddlers, and Twos with Special Needs
Placing children with special needs in environments that include typically developing peers has become commonplace as continuing research confirms that all children benefit and learn from each other as well as from their teachers. Teaching Infants, Toddlers, and Twos with Special Needs is written for all teachers and directors who work with infants, toddlers, and twos, including special educators and educators working with typically developing children. This book specifically addresses the needs of children with developmental delays, as well as children at risk for developing special needs.
As researchers continue to identify the benefits of inclusive education, early childhood programs are moving away from separate classrooms for special needs education in favor of inclusive classrooms. While these classrooms have many benefits, trying to teach children who are at varying developmental stages can be particularly taxing for educators. Gryphon House understands and our books on inclusion education offer practical advice teachers can use to modify learning centers so that they are accessible for all children.
Our special education books will help parents and teachers connect with special needs children in meaningful ways that will enable them to grow and learn. Browse our collection of special education books from Gryphon House’s award winning authors.
