Benchmarks of Recommended Practice: Needs Assessment for Successful Inclusion of Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities in Natural Settings.
Frank, Adrienne, Ed.
This needs assessment instrument contains indicators of recommended practice for serving infants and toddlers with disabilities in inclusive natural settings. It is designed to be used by early intervention personnel, child care providers, early childhood teachers, early Head Start providers, and others who wish to identify their needs for training, particularly that which is related to collaboration in natural settings. The 72 benchmark indicators of recommended practice were developed using a national validation process, similar to the process used by the Council of Exceptional Children's Division of Early Childhood for their publication "DEC Recommended Practices in Early Childhood Intervention/Early Childhood Special Education, 2000" (ED 451 662).
