This course will examine early childhood special education practices for both the inclusive and substantially separate settings. Areas of concentration will include: the history of early care for children with exceptionalities, a review of normal early childhood development, risk conditions in pre and post natal care, assessment of young children, procedures for referral and placement, and developmentally appropriate curriculum strategies. Special attention throughout the course will be placed on the role of families in partnership with caregivers and educators.
