Description of Early Childhood - Volume 2, Chapter 7 Foundations of Education
The early childhood years lay the foundation for everything that is learned throughout school and adult life. This chapter begins by discussing the role of the teacher of students with visual impairments in facilitating early learning of infants and preschoolers. It also presents several unique aspects of early childhood intervention programs: federal mandates and policy, special teams and teamwork, individualized program plans, and work with families. The balance of the chapter focuses on strategies for assessment and evaluation, intervention, and transition.
