This book looks at the core principles of HighScope's participatory learning approach, in which young children actively construct their knowledge of the world through their interaction with poeple, events, materials, and ideas. Supportive adults are partners in this learning experience, creating a climate in which children become trusting and independent. The authors?experts in the field of special education with more than 40 years of teaching and therapy experience between them?explore how children with special needs experience the same positive results of the HighScope approach as do their typically developing peers.
This book addresses questions that include:
- How do I use the HighScope curriculum with a child who has an Individualized Education Program?
- How do I problem-solve with a child who has special needs?
- Does the daily routine work for a child with special needs? What sorts of accommodations are necessary?
- Are there ways to effectively integrate curriculum and therapy?
