Adapting Early Childhood Curricula for Children with Disabilities and Special Needs uses a developmental focus, rather than a disability orientation, to discuss typical and atypical child development and curricular adaptations. This practical guide offers realistic curricular adaptations for ensuring the successful inclusion of students with special needs, ages 3 to 8. The text provides daily activities, how-to strategies and lesson modifications that help facilitate truly inclusive classrooms.

The 10th Edition includes enhanced discussions on working with families, children and professionals of diverse backgrounds. The text also offers new tips for integrating Division for Early Childhood Recommended Practices and updated requirements for writing IEP goals and recommendations.
