This indispensable reference title provides teachers, early childhood professionals and others in education settings with accurate and timely information about a wide range of disabilities and special or additional needs which can exist in childhood. It focuses on disabilities and conditions that exist from birth or which present during the early to middle childhood phase (up to the end of primary school).
The ‘red flags’ are a pointer to critical information that you may not already know about a particular condition or disability, or which requires careful consideration in a preschool or school environment. There are also hints and suggestions for what may be apparent in a child who has not yet been diagnosed with a particular condition, and details about where one condition may overlap with another.
Written by highly-experienced author/educator, Anne Vize, this accessible book does not aim to provide all the necessary information on a particular topic. Rather, the goal is to provide a path that will facilitate the search for further information when it is needed.
