Kupper, Lisa, Ed.
This parent's guide (presented in both English and Spanish) is intended to help families access services for young children with special needs. It is presented in the form of questions and answers arranged in three parts. Part I presents 12 questions and answers about early intervention services for infants and toddlers (ages birth through 2 years) who have a developmental delay or who are at risk of a developmental delay. Part II answers 8 questions about special education programs and services for preschoolers with disabilities (ages 3 through 5). Part III (5 questions) covers programs and services for rural, Native American, adoptive/foster, and military families and their young children with disabilities. An additional section offers summary information about the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Also included are a dictionary of terms used in special education, 10 annotated references for families, and a parent's record-keeping worksheet. (DB)
