Summary:

This paper reviews research findings on determining program quality in early intervention programs for young children goals of early intervention and basic characteristics of the population of children likely to participate in early intervention programs. The paper then discusses current perspectives on quality for all children and the debate regarding the relevance of "developmentally appropriate practice" for young children with special needs and their families. A following chapter, "Toy Play in Infancy and Early Childhood: Normal Development and Special Considerations for Children with disabilities," reviews literature on toy play in infancy and early childhood, with an emphasis on both normal developmental and special considerations for young children with disabilities. It outlines a set of guidelines that can be used by parents and professionals to select the most appropriate toys for young children, including suggestions for adapting play for young children with special needs. The final chapter, "Technology Integration into Early Childhood Curricula: Where We've Been, Where We Are, Where We Should Go" (Patsy L. Pierce), discusses three major types of technology: television, videos/interactive videodisc, computers and software. This discussion includes how technology is used, its impact on developmental domains, and suggestions for improved development and use of technology with very young children.
