An Emerging Approach for Education and Care provides a synthesis of the extensive research that has been conducted worldwide about the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health for Children and Youth in education and care. The main purpose of the ICF is to provide a classification of functioning for adults and children with difficulties, considering their everyday lives, all the activities they perform and the environments they are embedded in, in addition to their health condition, which has been the traditional focus of Special Education provision in many countries.

Each chapter presents an evidence-based study describing how the ICF has been used to improve the provision of services for children and young people with Special Educational Needs around the world. Moreover, each chapter is written by an expert on the ICF from a different country, thus providing an overview of how the ICF can be applied in international educational contexts with different educational and health systems and cultural backgrounds. This synthesis of world-leading research focuses on the ICF as a framework to approach assessment, intervention and classification for children and young people with SEN, whilst also providing practical examples of how it can be implemented.

An Emerging Approach for Education and Care will be essential reading for academics, researchers and practitioners working on Special Educational Needs provision and rehabilitation. It should also be of great interest to those involved in the study of early childhood education, and for postgraduate students aspiring to work in these settings.

It presents a wide array of studies conducted in diverse educational settings in several countries, including new research in England.

Castro and Palikara have produced an incisive and informative book, which advances the debate on the use of the ICF in education in significant ways. This is a unique and compelling resource for educationalists, policy makers, and students.

Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
