Joseph, Jaclyn D.; Rausch, Alissa; Strain, Phillip S. – Young Exceptional Children, 2018
In the authors' experience, most early childhood and early childhood special educators are quick to endorse the importance of young children's social interactions with each other, particularly in inclusive settings. In this context, it is both ironic and deeply troubling that while giving lip service to peer social skill development, the data…

Lederer, Susan Hendler – Young Exceptional Children, 2018

Environmental modifications to the block area are important to promote children's early spatial learning experiences. It is not enough just to include block materials in the classroom.

Farnsworth, Megan – Young Exceptional Children, 2018
Overrepresentation of Dual Language Learners (DLLs) in special education remains a problem even after 40 years of inquiry.

This lack of…
