This fully updated edition provides students with a comprehensive and thorough resource on all aspects of caring for young children with special needs. It also includes advice and guidance on new legislation, particularly the new Code of Practice for Special Educational Needs and crucially the implications this has for all Early Years settings. The book is divided into two parts. Part one addresses the background to disability, the complexity of the legislation and other related issues. Part two gives factual information and practical care advice on some of the more common conditions of young children. The book uniquely covers legislation, statement procedures, attitude, and value examination together with a comprehensive approach to the management and care of children with a wide variety of particular needs and is valuable as a reference tool for any nursery.
