Abstract
Comment dépister les enfants de 18 mois à 5 ans qui sont en difficulté ou à risque, soutenir leur développement et les préparer pour leur scolarité ? 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
The "missing piece" in successfully developing and using sensory modulation plans with elementary students Arnie and His School Tools: Simple Sensory Solutions to Build Success is an illustrated children's book about an exuberant little boy who had difficulty paying attention in class and doing his school work until he was equipped with the tools to accommodate his sensory needs. Written from Arnie's point of view, the book uses simple language to describe some of the sensory tools and strategies he uses at school and home to help him achieve a more optimal level of alertness and performance.Arnie and His School Tools creates an environment that is accepting of students with sensory modulation difficulties, including many on the autism spectrum. Occupational therapists, teachers and parents will find this book an engaging way to introduce elementary students to basic sensory tools used to help children focus in classroom settings, such as fidgets, chewy pencil toppers, and weighted vests.Additional resources are provided at the end of the book, including definitions of sensory processing and sensory modulation disorder, suggested discussion questions, and lists of related books and websites.

Abstract
LEARNING. Our children spend their days being passively instructed, and made to sit still and take tests--often against their will. We call this imprisonment schooling, yet wonder why kids become bored and misbehave. Even outside of school children today seldom play and explore without adult supervision, and are afforded few opportunities to control their own lives. The result: anxious, unfocused children who see schooling--and life--as a series of hoops to struggle through. In "Free to Learn," developmental psychologist Peter Gray argues that our children, if free to pursue their own interests through play, will not only learn all they need to know, but will do so with energy and passion. Children come into this world burning to learn, equipped with the curiosity, playfulness, and sociability to direct their own education. Yet we have squelched such instincts in a school model originally developed to indoctrinate, not to promote intellectual growth.

The purpose of this book is to focus on fundamental ADDIE principles, written with a minimum of professional jargon. This is not an attempt to debate scholars or other educational professionals on the finer points of instructional design, however, the book's content is based on sound doctrine and supported by valid empirical research.

Abstract
This book emphasizes the concept that every person's viewpoint is unique, that we each have our own reality or story, and that we bring that story to every interaction we have with others. Thus, a critical component of having effective and meaningful dialogue with others is our ability to be aware of our own stories "in the moment" and understand that others have their own stories. The book offers techniques to enhance our skills at learning through interaction. In addition to focusing on heightening awareness about our one on one interactions, this book also identifies how a reader may apply these skills to analyzing and improving systems (for example, analyzing patterns of communication behavior and potentially improving those interactions based on uncovering why those patterns exist).

Abstract
The ADDIE process is past its prime.
It was developed long before Agile and other iterative processes that have introduced greater efficiencies in design and development, fostered more creativity, and addressed effective stakeholder involvement. Leaving ADDIE for SAM introduces two new concepts - SAM, the Successive Approximation Model, and the Savvy Start. Together, they incorporate contemporary design and development processes that reduce the complexity of instructional design and development, yielding more energetic and effective learning experiences.

Abstract
L'objectif de ce livre est de décrire la dyslexie à la lumière des plus récentes découvertes scientifiques, tout en gardant à l'esprit qu'il s'agit d'abord et avant tout d'un diagnostic qui est fait grâce à la mise en évidence de problèmes spécifiques par des spécialistes. Si l'école et les enseignants sont en première ligne pour détecter des problèmes de lecture, la dyslexie dépasse largement le simple cadre scolaire et son évaluation. Son traitement nécessite la colla­boration d'intervenants du milieu de la santé et de la réadaptation qui doivent travailler ensemble pour obtenir les meilleurs résultats possible. Les contraintes budgétaires qui sévissent aussi bien dans le monde de l'éducation que dans celui de la santé ont conduit beaucoup de parents à se tourner vers des ressources privées ou d'autres thérapies pour essayer d'apporter le soutien nécessaire à leur enfant dyslexique. Ces différentes approches sont abordées ici en tenant compte de leur caractère scientifique; il ne s'agit donc pas d'une revue exhaustive de tout ce qui peut être entrepris par des personnes qui cherchent désespérément une solution miracle. Car il n'y a pas de miracle dans le traitement de la dyslexie: seulement beaucoup de travail, des efforts soutenus et bien orientés, en plus de la compréhension de la famille et de l'école.
À la fin de ce livre figure un fascicule spécifiquement réalisé pour être lu par un élève dyslexique. En effet, bien des parents et même des enseignants ont du mal à expliquer clairement à un enfant ce qu'est la dyslexie. Grâce à l'histoire que nous raconte Michael, un élève de niveau primaire pourra lui-même comprendre ses difficultés, alors que la page des parents permettra à ceux-ci de se documenter sur tel ou tel point précis et, au besoin, de répondre dans leurs mots aux questions de l'enfant.
