EEC 310 Early Intervention and Care

3 Credit(s)
This course will provide students with a working knowledge of the history and legal precedence for providing early intervention (EI) services and the knowledge and skills needed to work effectively with young children (birth to three) who are experiencing or are at-risk for developmental delays. Students will explore issues related to the impact that disability conditions have on young children’s learning needs in all developmental domains (i.e., physical, cognitive, language, and social). Culturally-and linguistically-appropriate instructional techniques and family engagement models will also be explored as well as effective ways to collaborate with family, therapists, and other early childhood education professionals. Students participate in a 15-hour field experience during the semester. Prerequisite: EEC 105 .
