State early learning and development standards: A unified curriculum framework for all young children


Early learning and development standards (ELDS) describe the knowledge, skills, and dispositions young children should demonstrate before kindergarten. This article describes a review of state ELDS for children from birth to 5 years of age to determine if they included information and guidance about the learning needs of young children with developmental delays. A national search of ELDS located 79 documents that represented 53 U.S. states and territories. (author abstract)
