EDCE 4200C Educating Young Children with Special Needs

This course provides early childhood educators with a theoretical framework and practical applications for developing curriculum to support children with special needs.  Information, guidance and resources will be presented to assist teachers in developing and differentiating curriculum, using adaptive technology, assessing students holistically, working with their classroom/administrative team as well as with children’s home/family/community in situations where a child may require an evaluation and/or additional support services. Special attention will be paid to issues of diversity, helping teachers to frame differences in a respectful, non-biased way.
