ECE Workshops Presents: Supporting & Working with Children with Exceptional Needs

In this workshop, early childhood educators explore their knowledge and experience of supporting children with exceptional needs. The workshop includes a general review about children with exceptionalities, information about what is involved with a child receiving an assessment and/or diagnosis and suggestions for ways ECEs can strengthen their day to day approach related to working with children (and their families) with exceptional needs. ECEs also explore any fears or concerns they may have about including a child with exceptional needs in their classroom or program. Participants learn to identify ways to make their approach more supportive and early learning environments more accessible for children with ADHD, Autism, Behavioural Disorders and Physical Disabilities.

Maria Montessori and the Montessori method in Early Childhood Education. The history of and recent popularity of the Montessori method of education. Maria Montessori was born August 31st, 1870 in Chiaravalle, Italy. Educated in Rome, Maria became one of Italy’s first ever female physicians and graduated from the University of Rome’s medical program, focussing on psychiatry. However during this time she also developed a keen interest in pedagogy, education and educational theory which would help her create an innovative way of teaching young children and would also spur her to open up the first ever Montessori school called the Casa dei Bambini or Children’s House. Maria is famous for having developed a school of thought and method of teaching, named after her, whose main tenets centre around a young child’s natural curiosity and inclination to learn.

Loris Malaguzzi is an important figure in the development and history of the field of early childhood education. Loris Malaguzzi is responsible for developing one of the world’s most popular educational approaches to date and that is the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education.

Malaguzzi developed the Reggio Emilia educational approach shortly after World War II at a time when many Italians felt children needed a new and progressive way of being educated. In the 1940’s after taking degrees in pedagogy and psychology, Malaguzzi began his career as an elementary school teacher. In 1963 with the help of the municipality of Reggio Emilia, Loris Malaguzzi participated in the creation of the first municipal preschools and simultaneously aided in the creation of several infant-toddler centres within the community.
