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 BJDD provides an international forum for a multidisciplinary approach to the problems posed by developmental/learning disability in all countries. Emphasis is put on the practical implications of the work of educationists, instructors, nurses, occupational and other therapists, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, whether taking place in a hospital setting or in community care. Recently published scientific papers indicate the wide range of interests served and the appeal to research workers as well as to professional care staff and to parents.

Abstract
The Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement, and Evaluate (ADDIE) process is used to introduce an approach to instruction design that has a proven record of success. 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.
