Synopsis:

“ The chapter on collaboration is an excellent addition that most texts of this type do not include, and I believe it is a unique, positive feature of this text. None of the introductory texts I've looked at have had such a thorough introduction to this topic.”

"Cynthia Herr, University of Oregon"

“ I like the balance achieved between professional delivery and family need. This degree of collaboration is long overdue and is welcomed.”

"James A. Siders, The University of Southern Mississippi"

“ One strength of the text is that. . .the parents are clearly included as a component of the team rather than an 'outside party.'”

"Philip Lee Gunter, Valdosta State University"

This exciting new text's contemporary treatment of special education prepares teachers for their role in the education and well-being of students with special needs. Some features include. . . IDEA 2004 Update Edition: "Special Education" reflects the IDEA 2004 legislation in two ways: An “ IDEA 2004” icon appears in the margins adjacent to relevant discussions throughout the book that have been revised to reflect IDEA '04. “ Guide to IDEA 2004” has been included as an appendix. It provides side-by-side comparison of IDEA '04 versus the previous '97 legislation for each of the statutes and a little friendly “ background” where it will help the reader better understand the practical implications of the law. Real People, Real Stories: "Special Education" brings the experience of people with disabilities to life for your students. The text includes powerful stories of people with disabilities and the stories of the people who live and work with them.Validated Teaching Practices: This text is filled with information and teaching approaches, strategies, and tips based on validated, peer-reviewed research findings. “ Specialized Instruction” highlights teaching applications for intensive instruction delivered by special education teachers in various educational settings. “ Inclusion Matters” presents teaching applications for students with various needs in general education settings. “ Collaboration in Action” explores the practical applications of collaborative school relationships. “ Positive Behavior Supports” illustrates the many positive, proactive ways to address student behavior/social issues as part of overall classroom teaching and learning. Unique Content Coverage: Recurring sections in all chapters include discussion of critical areas such as content area learning, social and emotional characteristics, early childhood, transition, parents and families, inclusive practices, best educational practices, and current trends and issues.
