About Author

Shirley Zeitlin, Ed.D., is a psychologist in private practice. Her early work as a school psychologist generated awareness of the impact of coping style on learning and the need to identify and help children with special needs before they failed. This led to her interest in the young child and the development of federally funded preschool and infant and toddler demonstration coping-related early intervention programs. Dr. Zeitlin developed and implemented a graduate program in early childhood special education at Monclair State College in Upper Montclair, New Jersey and also taught educational psychology and directed the research-oriented child study center at the State University of New York at New Paltz. She has lectured throughout the United States, Europe, and China. Through her many activities, including active involvement in national organizations, she makes many contributions to the emerging specialty of early intervention. Dr. Zeitlin's publications include Kindergarten Screening Early Identification of Handicapped Children, Personalized Learning Plans for Young Children, The Coping Inventory (observation and self-rating forms), The Early Coping Inventory, and many journal articles and book chapters.
