Angelman Syndrome Early Childhood ECSE Kindergarten

Abstract

Working with a Child who has Angelman Syndrome addresses the etiology and symptomology of Angelman Syndrome. It explores how Angelman Syndrome impacts a young child's development and how professionals can support this child.

The Role of an Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) Teacher in Kindergarten covers three topics: the transition from preschool to kindergarten from the kindergarten perspective; special education during kindergarten; and the transition from the special education category Developmental Delay to another special education category prior to a child's seventh birthday.
