Developing a schedule for a classroom is not an easy task. In this assignment, you will create your own schedule for a preschool classroom.
Imagine you are a teacher for a preschool classroom. Create a schedule that begins at 8 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m. Your schedule should include all aspects from arrival of the student to the departure. Be specific and detailed, similar to the schedules shown in Chapter 3. When making a schedule, teachers need to consider each of the following: early childhood philosophy; the needs of the children; a balance of activities (child-initiated and adult-initiated; individual, small-group, and large-group; quiet and active; indoors and outdoors); the needs of parents; and time for routines, transitions, and extended center time for in-depth learning.
Explain each of the areas listed above (in italics). Give an example of how you approached each of those areas in your schedule.
Week 2-Access to Healthcare in Developmental Disabilities
Based on your review of the articles assigned thus far, please discuss whether the healthcare issues of individuals with developmental disabilities are being met and provide support for your conclusions based on the readings and information found in other sources. Also, discuss potential barriers to effective care within this population.
Week 3-Long-term Care
Based on the articles by Botsford & King (2005) & Palley,H. & Van Hollen, V. (2000), identify at least 3 end-of-life issues faced by individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. What are some potential strategies to promote improved end-of-life care?
Review the ISTE Standards for Educators. Create a 10-12 slide digital presentation for your colleagues depicting technology in special education. Your presentation should include:
Examples of technologies that improve student learning within a special education environment.
Examples of technologies that could be used collaboratively within a special education environment.
Considerations regarding student access to and use of technology for learning.
Include a title page, presenter’s notes, and a reference slide.
Support your position with 3-5 sources from the required readings or the GCU Library.

When working with students with exceptionalities, it is important to understand the roles of various members of the special education team. Administrators, paraprofessionals, service providers (such as a speech, occupational, and physical therapists), teachers, and school nurses can all be members of this group, depending on the individual needs of the student. Understanding the role of each person during the IEP process and providing students with services in an educational setting is an integral part of instructing students with disabilities. This ensures their needs are being met within the requirements of the law and that the students and families are receiving appropriate support and resources.
Allocate up to 2 hours in the field to support this field experience.
Because this course does not require you to have a fingerprint clearance card, your field experience must be completed before or after school, or during another designated time when students are not present.
In person or via phone, interview two individuals who each represent a different role on the special education team specific to a grade range relevant to your program of study. Potential interviewees could include a school administrator, paraprofessional, school psychologist, service providers such as a speech, occupational, or physical therapists, or a school nurse. Do not interview a special education or general education teacher for this assignment, as those individuals will be interviewed in later field experiences. Be prepared to take notes, as these will be submitted as part of the assignment deliverable.
In the interview, address the following.
Discuss the characteristics of individuals with exceptionalities whom you serve, including gifted as well as those with disabilities.
Describe the educational, developmental, and medical services available for individuals with disabilities in your district.
Describe the specific steps in the IEP process.
Explain how special education and general education teachers are supported in the IEP process.
Describe how you collaborate with members of the IEP team. List other stakeholders you collaborate with as part of the IEP process and describe this collaboration.
Describe what you do to support families of individuals with disabilities.
Explain the process of addressing behavioral issues for students with disabilities.
Discuss the professional development that is available to you regarding special education policies, services, and educational strategies. Discuss whether there is specific training related to confidentiality, including who leads the training and how often it is required.
Discuss what you do to stay current on special education law.
In 250-500 words, consider what you learned from the two interviews and discuss the following:
Describe the similarities you noted in the responses of both interviewees. Include discussion of why you think that, regardless of their unique roles on the special education team, these commonalities exist.
Describe what made the role of each of your interviewees unique on the special education team. Include discussion of the key responsibilities each has in ensuring the needs of individuals with disabilities are being met in the educational setting.
Discuss what you learned about the significance of collaboration between members of the special education team. Include discussion of why collaborative professional practice is essential to meeting the needs of students with disabilities in the educational setting.
Explain how you will apply what you have learned from the interviews in your future professional practice related to using collaboration and other best practices to meet the needs of students with disabilities in the educational setting. Provide specific examples of ways that you can collaborate with individuals in the roles of the interviewees.
Submit your interview notes and reflection.
Read classmates post and respond with at least 100 words:
The four types of examinations are problem focused, expanded problem focused, detailed and comprehensive. The types are based on the extent of the history during the history taking portion of the physician-patient encounter. Both problem focused and expanded problem focused levels are defined as a limited examination of the affected body area or organ system. Expanded problem also includes other symptomatic or related organ systems. Detailed level is defined as an extended examination of the affected body area and other symptomatic or related organ systems. Comprehensive level is defined as a general mutli-system examination or complete examination of a single organ system. wc: 102

Effective teachers always reflect on the lesson, and lesson outcomes. Listen as the teacher reflects on this lesson, and compare it to the responses you have written on the observation worksheet. Use both the teacher’s reflections and your own observation when writing your overall observational reflection.
