Content: Library Services to Children with Special Needs
Is Your Early Childhood Literature Collection Disability-Inclusive and Current? Crystal E. Kaiser
As early education becomes progressively more inclusive, young children with disabilities and a wider range of special needs are increasingly more likely to be a part of community group care and educational programs and thereby included in library field trips. It is imperative for them and important to their teachers that they are able to find literature at their interest level that reflects an acceptance of their particular disability or special need. Similarly, with the earlier identification of disabilities and special needs, more parents may be educated as to the precise nature of the specific challenges facing their young child and may wish to locate appropriate literature that might validate their child and help him to identify with another child experiencing similar challenges. A comprehensive listing of more than three hundred such titles currently in print is presented, each of which has been categorized and subcategorized to facilitate research for specialized content. In addition, approximately one hundred additional titles on closely related topics also are presented. Research Challenges Children's librarians are important sources of information for parents of young children with special needs and disabilities who seek picture books and beginning chapter books with which their preschool or early primary­age child can readily identify. In addition, greater numbers of early childhood teachers are now teaching in inclusive programs in which children with a wide variety of disabilities and special needs may be integrated, posing new curricular challenges for which children's literature resources may be sought. Despite these
imperatives, locating such titles among current books in print may be surprisingly challenging and time-consuming, even for veteran librarians, particularly in this age range. Additionally, there are too many out-of-print titles still occupying library shelves that may reflect a very different time in this rapidly changing field, along with now-objectionable attitudes and dispositions toward these populations. They also may present now-incorrect or seriously outdated medical or developmental information, as well as now-objectionable terminology, making them a somewhat risky alternative to all but the experts in this field for most purposes. There are numerous reasons why appropriate titles are particularly hard to find in this specialty area using traditional search engines and library resources. First, perhaps due to business decisions based upon relatively limited audiences, many of these books go out of print unusually rapidly, often before several reliable children's books in print compilations are even published. Second, many titles are more likely to come from small, specialty publishing houses that may have limited visibility within mainstream library sources. Crystal E.

Third, even otherwise reliable Internet search engines often fail to successfully isolate literature specifically for the young child on these highly specialized topics. Even texts indicated to be in the target age range often were found to be at a higher level than would be appropriate for a seven-year-old or second-grader. The time necessary to amass current information on these topics makes it unrealistic for most children's librarians to conduct this research in response to individual requests, and there is currently no central resource for them to consult that would measurably speed such a search. A New Resource Presented here is a comprehensive literature review of more than three hundred current books in print for and about young children with special needs from ages two to seven, presented by category and subcategory for ease of reference. Many of the topical titles identified here may have relevance for caregivers of all young children, extending to such topics as wearing glasses or an eye patch, getting ear tubes, or having asthma or a peanut allergy. Recommendations There is a smaller subset of the presented book titles that represents particularly salient exemplars of current recommended best practice or especially positive portrayals of young children with special needs as they interact with their families and friends, and that also provides both realistic and factually correct information on specific conditions. Highlighting these titles should provide welcome guidance to those children's librarians most interested in conducting a more selective and topically representative review with a focus on quality that may best reflect the state of the practice in early childhood special education today. * Denotes a particularly recommended text reflecting current facts or dispositions. ° Denotes text with religious or spiritual overtones.
