For integration of special needs students to succeed, teachers and caregivers must be aware of the challenges inclusion can present, and engage in thoughtful planning and follow-through. This book provides information and support for early childhood staff with special needs children in their classrooms. The introduction describes the child with special needs and why this child is in a regular class. The second chapter addresses dealing with teacher's feelings about persons with special needs, while the third chapter suggests areas in need of consideration when preparing oneself and the physical environment to accommodate such children. The child with special needs and ways to assist with integration are discussed in chapter 4, while techniques that the staff can use to encourage acceptance and understanding of children with special needs by children with typical needs are suggested in chapter 5. Chapters 6 and 7 outline, respectively, working with parents of both groups of children and working with other service agencies. Names of organizations; suppliers of relevant publications and materials; and publications, children's books, recordings and videos are listed in the resource section of the book.

But when Grandpa Bear shows him a few tricks, Little Bear realizes that sometimes the simple way is best. In every country, standardization is a reflection of that nation's level of industrialization. Creating consistent, widely adopted standards helps industries manufacture products in ways that are efficient, safe, repeatable, and of high quality. Standards are essential for translating new ideas, inventions, and discoveries into economic growth and prosperity. Whether standards originate from national governments, professional associations, private enterprises, or other standard-setting entities, they capture the interdependencies among the different sectors. On a broader level, they also embrace a nation's industrial, technical, and social policies. As nations change, standardization principles and practices change with them. Nowhere is this more true than in China today, where a historic revision of the Chinese standardization regime is taking place. New methods, new ideas, and new strategies for effective standardization are percolating within Chinese government and civil society. One of the new ideas is "association standards," which are set by nonprofit, nongovernmental "social organizations" such as trade and professional associations. Though widespread in the United States, association standards are in the developmental stages in China, with reform efforts now focused on increasing the decision-making autonomy of nongovernmental standard-setting organizations. This paper compares Chinese and American systems for setting industrial standards. Specifically, the paper compares the US system of voluntary standards, which relies on consensus among parties and market-driven initiatives, with current efforts to reform China's government-directed standardization system. The paper focuses on five aspects: the degree of development of these nonprofit associations, the abilities of the associations, government attitudes, market demand, and overseas experience. The paper culminates in a discussion of policy implications for China's reform efforts. An important argument is that the government should introduce pragmatic, feasible policy measures that address the needs and capabilities of standard-setting organizations. These policies can draw important lessons from the achievements of America's voluntary standard system. This would require a deep understanding of the advantages, disadvantages, and applicability of the US approach to voluntary standards.
