Kung, Melody; Stolz, Kelsey; Lin, Joyce; Foster, Matthew E.; Schmitt, Sara A.; Purpura, David J. – Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, 2021
Some evidence suggests that the home numeracy environment (HNE) is related to children's numeracy. Socioeconomic status (SES) and language minority status can also influence children's HNE and numeracy. Limited HNE research focuses on dual language learners (DLLs). Using a sample of preschool-aged children (n = 98) from low socioeconomic status…

Love, Hailey R.; Horn, Eva – Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, 2021
The most recent efforts to promote inclusive education have acknowledged the various contexts in which it takes place, moving away from a placement-focused conceptualization of inclusion. Acknowledging that inclusive education may take place within multiple types of early childhood education programs necessitates the consideration of context as a…

Young children with and without disabilities who are bilingual or in the process of learning multiple languages have many strengths; however, educational policies and bias related to bilingualism for children from linguistically minoritized groups have typically included deficit-based views. The purpose of this systematic review was to identify…

In this article, we draw on DisCrit to critically analyze how a group of early childhood educators approached assistance with young children of color with disabilities in a Head Start inclusion classroom. Using examples from data collected over one school year, we demonstrate how child-centered assistance advances justice for young children of…

Boone Blanchard, Sheresa; Ryan Newton, Jennifer; Didericksen, Katherine W.; Daniels, Michael; Glosson, Kia – Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, 2021
Many early intervention systems are focused on "fixing" children to support development and inclusion. However, we need to acknowledge systemic racism and bias to focus on early settings, schools, and practitioners who are ready for all children. Furthermore, knowledge about the existence of bias and its possible harmful effects support…

Hancock, Christine L.; Morgan, Chelsea W.; Holly, James, Jr. – Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, 2021
Early childhood personnel preparation programs must prepare future early educators who can counteract racism and ableism to provide all children with an equitable and just education. We applied Dis/ability Critical Race Theory (DisCrit) Classroom Ecology to early childhood and specifically to preschool settings. We argue that early childhood…

Love, Hailey R.; Beneke, Margaret R. – Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, 2021
Multiple scholars have argued that early childhood inclusive education research and practice has often retained racialized, ableist notions of normal development, which can undermine efforts to advance justice and contribute to biased educational processes and practices. Racism and ableism intersect through the positioning of young children of…

Coogle, Christan Grygas; Storie, Sloan; Ottley, Jennifer R.; Rahn, Naomi L.; Kurowski-Burt, Amy – Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, 2021
We investigated the effect of real-time technology-enhanced performance-based feedback delivered during three different routines on teacher practice and child outcomes. Participants were three early childhood special education teachers and three focus preschool children identified with autism spectrum disorder. We used a multiple-probe single-case…

Kong, Na Young; Carta, Judith J.; Greenwood, Charles R. – Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, 2021
A tenet of the Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is that even evidence-based interventions will not be effective with all children. We examined preschool children's response to a supplemental literacy intervention ("Story Friends") in two classrooms. Children with weak vocabulary skills were identified and received the intervention.…

Curtiss, Sarah L.; McBride, Brent A.; Uchima, Kelly; Laxman, Dan J.; Santos, Rosa M.; Weglarz-Ward, Jenna; Kern, Justin – Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, 2021
The interest in fathers as active parents has increased dramatically over the past 30 years among researchers and the popular press with considerable attention given to direct child-rearing activities; however, mothers continue to be the most likely participants in early intervention (EI) services. Using thematic analysis, we explored providers'…

García-Grau, Pau; Martínez-Rico, Gabriel; McWilliam, R. A.; Grau, Dolores – Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, 2021
Despite an emphasis on family-centered practices in early intervention, the translation of this philosophy into practice is unclear. We, therefore, measured practices of 250 early intervention service providers in Spain, with the Families in Natural Environments Scale of Service Evaluation. We analyzed the "difficulty" of practices,…

Lane, Kathleen Lynne; Buckman, Mark Matthew; Common, Eric Alan; Oakes, Wendy Peia; Lane, Nathan Allen; Schatschneider, Christopher; Perez-Clark, Paloma; Sherod, Rebecca L.; Menzies, Holly Mariah – Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, 2021
We report findings of two validation studies of the Student Risk Screening Scale for Early Childhood (SRSS-EC). Although previous exploratory inquiry suggested a two-factor solution, results of Study 1 conducted with 274 preschool-age youth suggested mixed support for a two-factor model, with only one fit index suggesting an adequate fit…
