Not All Little Wagons Are Red; the Exceptional Child's Early Years.
Jordan, June B., Ed.; Dailey, Rebecca F., Ed.
Collected are presentations from the Invisible College Conference on Early Childhood Education and the Exceptional Child, convened for the purpose of sharing with administrators, program planners, and teachers current thinking of key leaders in intervention research, curriculum and materials development, personnel training, and program evaluation. The first section offers a rationale and historic perspective for early intervention, in one paper about the importance of early education and another on the educability of intelligence in young children. The identification of exceptional children is discussed in the second section which includes a paper on increasing the lead time for the preschool aged handicapped child, and a paper on the type of teacher who can effectively teach the exceptional young child. The third section considers program models and resource materials in papers on the following topics: implications of research with disadvantaged children, training of parents in the early education of the handicapped, an early childhood education center with a developmental approach, a child development/day care resources project, and planning and evaluation. Three papers on the training of personnel consider training in a day care system, a handbook for training facilitators, and the need for an integrated approach to training, respectively. In the final section on initiating and implementing change are discussed public involvement in early childhood education in Illinois and the psychology of planned change. (DB)
