New Course from CCEI Covers Individualized Instruction in Early Childhood Care and Education

ChildCare Education Institute® (CCEI), a distance learning professional development and certificate provider, is proud to introduce GUI104: Individualized Guidance, Instruction, and Support in Early Childhood Care and Education to the online child care training course catalog.

Individualized guidance, instruction, and support covers a range of learning and development outcomes in early care and education (ECE). This course presents strategies for individualizing instruction in order to meet the needs of all young children, including but not limited to those with special needs. Major topics include differentiated instruction, Universal Design for Learning (UDL), and Response-to-Intervention (RTI) in the context of early care and education environment. While the course provides essential background information as to why individualized instruction is important and how to manage it in a large or diverse classroom, the biggest benefit may come from the wide range of practical methods and practices teachers can apply in the classroom, including grouping, pacing, management of materials, guidance practices, and activities that teachers and childcare providers can apply directly in the learning environment.

“When it comes to individualized instruction, it’s essential to give every child the opportunity to develop to his or her full potential,” says Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI. “We’re excited to introduce this course to help teachers and child care providers learn the methods and procedures to apply in the classroom, which in turn creates the best possible environment for young children.”

This three-hour training course is available for online enrollment now, and awards 0.3 IACET Continuing Education Units (CEUs) upon successful completion. Active, unlimited individual or center-based subscription holders may take this course at no additional cost at any time.
