Explain how each of the six major principles of IDEA will guide your thinking about working with young children as a child development professional. Based on what you learned in the first 2 weeks of the course, if you could recommend a change to IDEA in its next authorization that would do more to positively affect children ages 0–5, what would it be, and why?

IDEA requires that all children with special needs, birth to 3 years old, receive services in their “natural environment” and those children older than 3 be educated in the “least restrictive environment.” Imagine that as a child development professional, you are part of an IEP team for a preschool child identified with a special need. Describe at least three considerations that would be essential to deciding what the least restrictive environment would be for that child.
