Lek och samspel i Sandviken

Mina, Eva och jag är i Sandviken idag för att träffa förskollärare och specialpedagoger och förbereda och planera utprovningen av lekstunderna under vecka 14.

Mina berättade om underlaget för observationer (Teacher Impression Scale) som vi har jobbat med och som kommer att användas även här. Vi kopplade upp oss med Sam Odom och fick en backgrund av programmet Play Time Social Time och flera i gruppen ställde frågor och berättade om egna erfarenheter av att arrangera lekstunder som underlättar lek mellan alla barn i gruppen.


Förberedelser

Kaffepaus för Mina och Eva

Message from Susan Sandall

Hello. My name is Susan Sandall. I am Professor Emerita at the University of Washington in Seattle. I am also an associate with projects at Stockholm University. I have enjoyed getting to know many of you during my recent visits to Stockholm. I am excited to stay connected through the Play and Language work.

At the University of Washington, I taught courses in early childhood special education and prepared teachers and prospective researchers in the area of inclusive early learning for children with disabilities from birth to five years. I also work extensively with Head Start, a U.S. program for young children who are living in poverty. While I have retired from my faculty duties, I continue to be involved in a number of projects related to supporting teachers in inclusive programs.

Some of you have heard me speak about Building Blocks, a framework for including and teaching preschoolers with special needs. We are pleased to tell you that the third edition of the book is at the publisher and will be available later this year. You can read more about it here: Haring center for inclusive education
