Abstract
The Life Facts managing emotions kit contains materials that are designed to teach persons with learning and/or developmental disabilities about feelings and how they can be managed. Like other programs in the LifeFacts series, its purpose is to deliver basic information, not provide a comprehensive review. As such, the authors have chosen to concentrate on the four core emotions from which all other feelings arise: sadness, anger, fear and happiness. This program is designed to assist staff in providing a foundation from which their students can begin to build self-control.

Abstract
This curriculum for children from birth to 3 years with mild to severe disabilities links assessment and intervention. The book begins by describing the approach and principles of CCITSN and how to use the curriculum. The book outlines 24 teaching sequences, which are clustered into five areas: cognition, communication, social/adaptation, fine motor, and gross motor. Every sequence is introduced with a short description and special adaptations for children with motor, vision, or hearing impairments. Each curricular item or behavior within a sequence includes a materials list, a procedure and functional activities for teaching the skill, and the criteria for successful mastery. This new edition extends the age range from birth to 24 months to birth to 36 months. The curriculum can also be used with older children who fall within this age range developmentally. This volume overlaps with the second edition of The Carolina Curriculum for Preschoolers with Special Needs. This edition has more emphasis on home environment, play and emergent literacy. The appendix describing common conditions is also new to this volume.

Over the past several years, the trend toward educating students with special needs in inclusive settings has, if anything, accelerated. As a result general education teachers need more than ever before to understand the nature of special education, the characteristics of children with special needs, strategies to work effectively with them, and techniques for forming partnerships with special educators and parents. This book takes a non-categorical approach and emphasizes best practices for teaching students with disabilities in inclusive settings. The focus is on identifying and adapting factors in inclusive settings in order to meet students' instructional needs and developing collaborative working relationships to enhance student success.
