GRADED PROJECT: WORKING WITH CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
Introduction
For this project, you’ll type a 3–5 page essay with connections to your textbook and/or an outside source. You’ll start your essay with an opening paragraph and end it with a conclusion.
Instructions
This project consists of five parts:
Part One
Begin with an opening paragraph sharing what you will be writing about. This paragraph should entice a reader to want to read more.
Part Two
Share how knowledge of child development can assist professionals in assessment and in intervention. You should start by describing typical development of a child, then share a specific disability that you read about this week, and then share how this disability affects a child’s development.
Part Three
If you were a teacher in this child’s preschool classroom, how would you create an inclusive environment for this child in your mixed age (3–5 year olds) class? Share two examples.
Part Four
Identify three legal implications of including a student with special needs into your early childhood setting.

 

Part Five
Your final paragraph should summarize your learning.
