Comment prévenir les échecs et les abandons scolaires chez ces enfants qui manifestent dès la petite enfance des difficultés de comportement et des retards de développement.
Ce livre traite d'une nouvelle façon d'intervenir auprès de ces enfants qui a été élaborée au terme d'une recherche de plus de cinq années. Elle consiste à former des éducatrices et des conseillères pédagogiques qui assureront le dépistage et l'intervention sur le terrain. L'ouvrage décrit bien cette nouvelle approche et suggère, en annexe, de nombreux outils.

Abstract
Klane tells the story of Evan through recollections begun at about the time of Evan's tenth birthday—a miracle birthday if ever there was one. She records their life in and out of hospitals, doctor's offices, life-threatening emergencies, treatments, home healthcare, school, all from the moment of Evan's birth. We learn what it is like to be the parent of an exceptional child, as much as we learn what life is like for the child. To help illustrate the life of this family, their experiences, and emotions, Klane has included poems and drawings she created over the years, which have been sprinkled throughout the book, as well as family photographs. All of these are a touching reminder that this family is real and that the issues they face every day are huge. Too, this is as much a how-to book as it is the story of one family. There are chapters included on being an effective team player, taking care of yourself as a parent, learning to trust your own instincts, and how to stand up for yourself and your child when you in disagreement with the professionals. A glossary is included, as well as a medical timeline, which is a bit of a capsulation of the events Evan experienced during each year of his life to date.

Using photos of family members and the words of children as young as six, the author shows the ups and downs of life with someone who has autism. The book contains interviews with the non-autistic child in more than 10 sibling pairs, and has color photographs of the kids interacting. Written in the first person, the essays tell of brothers who behave differently and “can’t do things,” sisters who aren’t able to speak, and children who throw tantrums and are made fun of by others.

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.

Abstract
This is a program for educators to use to teach children about puberty. Each section can initially be taught to separate sex classes. Each picture card included in the kit has an individual objective with information and teaching questions on the back. Lesson plans include teaching strategies to supplement the use of the picture cards. These strategies encourage increased student involvement through the use of dramatic play, activities which require students to think and make decisions and demonstration and use of real hygiene products. Tests have been developed for this curriculum to determine the level of student understanding.
