Trainer's Guide to Building Blocks for Teaching Preschoolers with Special Needs  free pdf This is the trainer's guide to go along with the second edition of the "Building Blocks" book, which provides trainers with a complete package of PowerPoint slides, presentation notes, handouts, and videos to train early childhood educators in implementing the Building Blocks framework for inclusion of preschoolers with special needs. The book and this trainer's guide offer teachers effective, research-based instructional practices to promote learning in their inclusive classrooms.
