Understanding Your Young Child with Special Needs explores the developmental impact of disability on normal stages of child development, and examines the complex nature of the emotional bonds between parents and their children with special needs. Placing the child and his or her personality, family life, feelings and behaviours in the foreground, Bartram addresses all the 'ordinary' challenges and tasks of parenting, such as sibling relationships, nursery and school, toilet training, and healthy aggression, as well as those that are of particular relevance to the parents of young children with special needs. This accessible book will provide a wealth of information to help parents of a child with special needs understand his or her development and their own relationship with the child, and will also be of interest to professionals working with babies and pre-school children with special needs.

This practical, hands-on guide provides strategies and adaptations to accommodate young children with disabilities or special needs. It puts theory into practice with clear examples and directions to ensure all children can participate equally in the inclusive classroom. Adaptations are offered by activity rather than by disability, and the focus is on embedding instruction within daily routines. Short chapters, clear discussion of rationale, and the plentiful examples prepare readers to effectively support children with a variety of common disabilities such as cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, autism, visual impairment, hearing loss, and behavioral challenges. Readers have commented on the usefulness of the strategies, details, and scenarios for working in general and special early childhood education. The text is especially appropriate for seminars accompanying student teaching and internships in general education, special education, and inclusive early childhood classrooms.

This book is the outcome of many years' study on the large population of preschool children in Dundee, Scotland, where, since 1973, there has been an extensive and comprehensive program of development screening. The research population numbered more than 5,000 children, and the aims of the study were to estimate the frequency and types of neurodevelopmental disabilities identified, to describe their management, to attempt to ascertain causative factors, and to look at the predictive value of screening and its therapeutic value. Separate chapters deal with the various types of problems identified: global delay and mental retardation, motor problems, speech and language problems, behavior disorders, visual and auditory problems. A wealth of information is contained in each chapter on prevalence, causation, and consequences, with illustrative case examples, as well as a review of other relevant studies. Finally there is a valuable discussion on the relative merits of screening and health surveillance, again with reference to other important studies. This book is essential reading for all concerned with the planning or implementation of screening and surveillance programs for preschool children, and should finally answer the question of whether or not screening is worth while.
