Our Price: $30.00

DEC Recommended Practices: Enhancing Services for Young Children With Disabilities and Their Families aims to help bridge the gap between research and practice by highlighting practices that have been shown through research to result in better outcomes for young children with disabilities, their families, and the personnel who serve them. It begins with a history of the recommended practices written by DEC Recommended Practices Commission Chair Mary McLean as well as an account of how the most recent revisions were made. The following chapters focus on each of the eight domains within the practices: leadership, assessment, environment, family, instruction, interaction, teaming and collaboration, and transition. The authors of each chapter explain these content areas individually, providing definitions and describing scenarios and examples that can inform the successful implementation of the practices. Stakeholders in the field also share a collection of short essays about how the recommended practices inform what they do on behalf of young children with disabilities.

Promoting meaningful access, participation, and inclusion.

Environment is an essential area of attention for practitioners who support young children with disabilities and their families. Decisions about the environment impact the quality of care and education for young children with disabilities showing measurable influence on expected outcomes. Environment impacts true access, quality participation, and full inclusion. Articles in this monograph feature a variety of environments and multiple perspectives on what is and what is possible. The monograph includes information on assistive technology, UDL, representation of disability in the environment, and more. The influence of the environment on the health and development of children with or at risk for disabilities cannot be overstated. We hope that practitioners, families, caregivers, professional development providers, and educators alike will use the information in these articles on the Environment recommended practices to help guide decisions about the environment in their worlds, particularly as they affect a child’s ability to access and participate in all learning experiences.
