Identifying Additional Learning Needs in the Early Years : Listening to the Children
'I know there is something wrong, but what?'
'How do I know if outside help for this child is needed?'
'How do I tell parents that their child could have a learning difficulty?'
These are questions that most nursery workers, at some point in their careers, will have to face. Based on the lives of real children and typical situations in early years settings, early years practitioners will find this book invaluable in helping them care for and educate young children with additional learning difficulties.
Key difficulties such as Attention Deficit Disorder, dyspraxia, dyslexia and autism are explained in some depth, with detailed suggestions for practical strategies to help support children with these special needs. Chapters in this book:
* Explore the process of early identification;
* Show how to make inclusion a reality in the nursery;
* Tackle the complex issue of dealing with parents;
* Discuss techniques for skilled and informed observation and assessment.
Each chapter has an explanation section supported by a set of practical strategies to support both the child and the practitioner. Throughout this accessible and lively book, the author highlights the importance of listening to young children, using case-studies to illustrate this, and shows how making time for listening is key to providing exactly the right level of help
