The Integration of Handicapped and Non-Handicapped Infants and Toddlers: A Guide for Program Development.
Gil, Linda L.
The guide is intended to aid the integration of normally developing children and children with handicaps into one early childhood program. An introductory chapter describes the Northwest Center Infant and Toddler Development Program in Washington and chronicles initial philosophical, educational, and programatic considerations. Each subsequent chapter addresses major service components of the program: services to children in the integrated or mainstreamed program; methods for integrating; therapies in an integrated early childhood program; nursing services; home-based programming and nutrition services; family involvement; staff training; and transition procedures. Each component is examined in terms of rationale, service provision, suggested strategies for implementation, evaluation, budget considerations, and a reference list. (CL)
