Understanding Children with Special Needs and their Families 



Course DescriptionAs more early education and care programs include children with special needs, it is important for educators and staff to understand who these children are, the needs of the child and family, and the educational and therapeutic services they typically receive.  This course offers an overview of children with special needs and is especially suited for early education and care providers who have not yet included children with special needs in their programs.  Information will be offered on Early Intervention and the IFSP, Special Education and the IEP, and the impact on families of having a child with special needs.  Resources for learning about specific diagnoses will be offered and specific internet sites will be explored.  Videos depicting inclusive programs, produced by SpecialQuest, will be shown.
