October 2024 | 472 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

An Introduction to Young Children With Delays and Disabilities: Birth Through Age Eight introduces readers to educational policies, services, and practices for future educators serving young children birth through age eight with delays and disabilities in early intervention/early childhood special education (EI/ECSE). Thoughtfully and comprehensively addressing the needs of young children and their families, esteemed authors Richard M. Gargiulo and Jennifer L. Kilgo offer interventions and instructional techniques that provide students with a broad understanding of important theoretical and philosophical foundations, including evidence-based decision making, cultural and linguistic responsiveness, and appropriate instruction and interventions in classroom settings and beyond. 

 

The Sixth Edition has been thoroughly updated to incorporate the Initial Practice-Based Professional Preparation Standards for Early Interventionists/Early Childhood Special Educators developed by the Division for Early Childhood (DEC) and Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) in 2020, as well as the DEC Recommended Practices. The revised text reflects these standards and practices in crucial content around assessment processes, partnering with families, teaming and collaboration, and services in natural environments, among many other updates to provide contemporary information and resources for future educators.
