Review of the Literature in Early Childhood Education, with Emphasis Upon Early Education of Handicapped Children: A Staff Training Manual. Vol. 1, No. 8.
Hammer, Edwin K.
The review of literature related to basic ideas in early childhood education relates the development of early education programs to the education of handicapped children. Research studies based on the premise that early mediation of disabilities is beneficial to minimize the effects of the handicapping condition are reviewed, as are studies in program development. Covered are several types of early childhood intervention programs which have been suggested. Types, philosophy, components, and logical development of programs are delineated. The fundamental needs of all children as suggested by L. K. Frank (1938) are examined, to serve as a framework for developing required services for handicapped children. Also reviewed is selected literature relating to teaching strategies, techniques for observing emerging needs in children, and the definition of the role of the early education teacher. (KW)
