The Special Child: Strategies for Treatment and Management. Understanding and Guiding to Reach Individual Potential.
The manual is intended to provide preschool educators who work with exceptional children with both theoretical background and practical guidance in teaching children with attentional deficit disorders, oppositional disorders, conduct disorders, autism, developmental learning disorders, childhood depression, borderline personality disorders, and childhood schizophrenia. The first chapter presents information on the normal child including motor development, perceptual development, language acquisition, and social and emotional development. Charts of age appropriate norms from ages 2 through 5 are provided. Among 10 charts given in the extensive chapter on the special child are a temperament checklist, a self-concept rating scale, a chart of basic developmental tasks, language milestones, and indicators of possible learning disorders. A chapter is then given to each specific disability area organized around theoretical considerations, student characteristics, causation and prognosis, and treatment and management. Suggested readings are provided for each chapter and a glossary of terms is also included. (DB)
