Learn more about children with special needs

Allan Hancock College’s early childhood studies program is offering two classes this spring for people who work with special needs children

“Infant Intervention” offers an introductory overview for working with infants and toddlers at risk for special needs, and their families. Students will examine risk factors, learn how to access community resources, discuss strategies for assisting families, and explore using typical play to facilitate development for children with special needs. This three-unit class will be offered on Tuesdays beginning Jan. 22, 2013, at 3:20 p.m. on the Santa Maria campus.

“The Preschool Child with Special Needs” will provide an overview of the characteristics of preschool children with special needs and educational styles most suited to their needs. Students learn strategies for coping with care-giving challenges, and learn about resources available to assist them, the child, and families. This three-unit class will be offered Tuesday evenings beginning Jan. 22, 2013, at 6:30 p.m. on the Santa Maria campus.
