EARLY CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCE IN THE LANGUAGE ARTS: EARLY LITERACY, Tenth Edition helps teachers become knowledgeable companions to young children as they explore and share literature and language experiences through interesting, developmentally appropriate activities. To achieve this goal, this contemporary reference encourages reflective thinking, allows for practice of skills, and inspires the collection of ideas for future use. It thoroughly explores the primary interrelated areas of language arts--listening, speaking, reading, and writing--as well as the closely tied area of visual literacy, which is increasingly important given children’s frequent interactions with visual technology. While painting a comprehensive picture of the most important aspects of teaching early literacy, the book also incorporates valuable information that teachers can take directly into practice. Readers learn classroom activities involving stories, poems, finger plays, and puppetry. They also learn curriculum for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, with discussions of theory illuminated by practical how-to suggestions. Cultural diversity is addressed, as are program-planning ideas for English language learners and special-needs children.

Many practitioners within health and social care come into contact with people with intellectual disabilities and want to work in ways that are beneficial to them by making reasonable adjustments in order to meet clients’ needs and expectations. Yet the health and wellbeing of people with learning disabilities continues to be a neglected area, where unnecessary suffering and premature deaths continue to prevail. This text provides a comprehensive insight into intellectual disability healthcare. It is aimed at those who are training in the field of intellectual disability nursing and also untrained practitioners who work in both health and social care settings. Divided into five sections, it explores how a wide range of biological, health, psychological and social barriers impact upon people with learning disability, and includes: Six guiding principles used to adjust, plan and develop meaningful and accessible health and social services Assessment, screening and diagnosis of intellectual disability across the life course Addressing lifelong health needs Psychological and psychotherapeutic issues, including sexuality, behavioural and mental health needs, bereavement, and ethical concerns. The changing professional roles and models of meeting the needs of people with intellectual and learning disabilities. Intellectual Disability in Health and Social Care provides a wide-ranging overview of what learning disability professionals’ roles are and provides insight into what health and social care practitioners might do to assist someone with intellectual disabilities when specific needs arise.
