Despite its crucial role in early atypical cognitive and behavioral development, the brain has been largely absent from studies of early intervention. In this chapter, I will address issues related to the integration of neuroscience and education and provide an overview of noninvasive methods for measuring brain structure and function in young children. Throughout, specific challenges, implications, and new opportunities for early childhood special education will be addressed.
