Spring 2013 Classes Focus on Young Children With Special Needs

Classes benefit children and their families and caretakers.

Do you care for a child with special needs?  Do you want to learn strategies, expand your strengths, and explore your concerns?  If so, two spring 2013 classes being offered by Allan Hancock College’s early childhood studies program can offer you the information you need to enhance the experience of child care providers, families, and children.

Infant Intervention (ECS 113, CRN 41140) 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, 2012, at 3:20 p.m. on the Santa Maria campus.

The Preschool Child with Special Needs (ECS 112, CRN 40629) will provide an overview of the characteristics of preschool children with special needs and consider those educational approaches most suited to their particular needs.  Students will explore their own strengths and concerns, 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, 2012, at 6:30 p.m. on the Santa Maria campus.
