North Dakota State Dept. of Public Instruction, Bismarck. Div. of Special Education.
Intended as a reference guide for early childhood special education personnel in North Dakota, this guide addresses required and recommended practices related to the delivery of services to children with disabilities, ages 3 through 5, and their families. The guide was developed by 50 specialists including parents and reflects all segments of the state service delivery system, guidelines from other states, and the position statements and recommendations of the Division for Early Childhood Education of the Council for Exceptional Children and the National Association for the Education of Young Children. Each of the three main sections is designed as an independent stand-alone chapter, dealing respectively with: (1) evaluation and assessment, (2) program planning, and (3) staff/facilities. Each section provides subheadings referring to the primary components of the service delivery system, a listing of appropriate state regulations relating to children requiring special education, guidelines that provide operational objectives related to each activity, recommended practices and procedures, and supplemental information in appendices.
