These are questions that most nursery workers, at some point in their careers, will have to face. Based on the lives of real children and typical situations in early years settings, early years practitioners will find this book invaluable in helping them care for and educate young children with additional learning difficulties. Attention Deficit Disorder, dyspraxia, dyslexia and autism are some of the difficulties explained in depth, with detailed suggestions to help support children with these special needs. Chapters in this book: explore the process of early identification show how to make inclusion a reality in the nursery tackle the complex issue of dealing with parents discuss techniques for skilled and informed observation and assessment. Each chapter has an explanation section supported by a set of practical strategies to support both the child and the practitioner. Throughout this lively book, the author uses case studies to highlight the importance of listening to young children and shows how making time for listening is key to providing exactly the right level of help.

How can early years practitioners help young children to become not only numerate but aspiring mathematicians who love numbers, shapes and mathematical comparisons? The introduction of the Foundation Stage has led to practitioners seeking ways to teach maths which are more in line with the creative and playful ways young children learn other subjects.

This highly practical and engaging text includes chapters on: why maths is often seen as 'hard' and what practitioners can do to help young children be more successful exploring shapes, space, measures and patterns how to make maths more fun and playful, using games, humour, stories and rhymes using music and dance to enhance mathematical understanding encouraging children to see the connection between maths and everyday experiences through, for example sorting, matching and guessing creating an environment for mathematical development, indoors and out Concluding with a chapter on how practitioners and parents can become more confident in their use of maths, this user-friendly text, packed full of ideas, is essential reading for practitioners in any early years setting. Students on Early Education courses will also find much here to inspire them.
