Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(12), 1332–1333. Reviews the book, When Slow is Fast Enough: Educating the Delayed Preschool Child by Joan F. Goodman (see record 1992-97641-000). Goodman has written a thought-provoking, timely, and controversial book that explores and challenges the foundations on which early childhood special education programs have been built. Against the framework of three educational models (cultural transmission, romantic, and progressive-developmental), she has observed and summarized the features that represent early intervention programs that serve the heterogeneous population of preschoolers who function in the range of moderate mental retardation.
