- "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, considifering 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."--Provided by publisher.
