Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Highlights of the New Edition:

  • Book has been re-organized to present the overview of mild disabilities earlier in the book (now chapter 2).  This chapter includes new information on Asperger’s Syndrome, pervasive developmental delay and non-verbal learning disabilities, as well as expanded information on ADHD.
  • Response To Intervention (RTI).  New information on RTI and how it creates opportunities for general education reading specialists to establish preventive reading programs for at-risk students.  Included is specific scientifically based reading strategies identified by the National Institute for Literacy (Chapter 5).
  • New information on using technology with students with mild disabilities.
  • A new feature occurs in every chapter called “Speedbumps.” Speedbumps break up lengthy sections of text with concise comments, humor or questions to keep reader interest.  There are approximately 10 speedbumps interspersed throughout each chapter.
  • Includes discussion of new guidelines established by the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities for identification of students with mild intellectual disabilities.  Throughout the text new terminology--"students with mild intellectual disabilities"--is used insted of the term "mild mental retardation."

Another book that was less than valuable and way overpriced. I've already railed about how overpriced textbooks are and how it's just a way to rip off students. After the class was over, I returned the book and would never have read it again had I actually bought it (I rented it). The fact that they make textbook rental an option should tell you something-you don't really need it in the future, the university just wants as much money from you as they can get. If you can, save your money and don't buy this. If you must use it, Amazon is awesome as far as rental textbooks go-university bookstores are like loan sharks.

A valuable and comprehensive text for both the special education and general education teacher. Strategies can be directly applied to one's daily classroom practice. I bought this for my university course but plan to keep it as a reference. Interesting, well-written, & so practically useful that I finished it early. A must-have for the special education teacher, but I would highly recommend this book to general education teachers looking to better serve the needs of their students with disabilities.

For a 6th edition, and considering the purchase price, I wouldn't expect to find grammatical errors on almost every page. It seems that perhaps editing was skipped before publishing, making me wonder if all of the information contained is correct. Reading this book was quite frustrating, especially because it sells as a text book.
