Editorial Reviews

Review

“The information in this text is all valuable and important for the students we teach. Friend and Bursuck have done a comprehensive job in covering the very topics that educators should be aware of, know something about, or master. I commend the authors for such a fine job pulling together this very critical material.”

- Janetta Fleming Bradley, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

 

“The style of writing is user-friendly. It feels like a conversation between a mentor and teacher is taking place.”

- Melina Alexander, Weber State University

 

“The use of student examples woven throughout the chapters makes the book very clear and realistic for future teachers who are coming to grips with the idea of inclusion. There are many practical and understandable real-life examples throughout the book.”

- Dr. Genevieve Howe Hay, College of Charleston

 

“I think this is an excellent text for Introduction/Survey of Special Education courses that are designed to give the learner a broad overview of diversity in the classroom.”

- Jackie Paxton, Ed.D., Arkansas Tech University

From the Back Cover

This bestselling Inclusion text continues to provide the best source of practical strategies for teaching students with special needs in inclusive settings. Filled with examples and vignettes, the emphasis is always on teaching methods that promote student independence at all education levels.  Its non-categorical approach helps teachers ensure all students’ success regardless of their specific categories of exceptionality. 

 

Highlights of the Fifth Edition…

  • Updated discussion of NCLB and IDEA 2004.
  • NEW coverage of students with Asperger Syndrome and more prominent and detailed coverage of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
  • New coverage of Response to Intervention (RTI) as an option for identifying students who may have learning disabilities, and relevant new information about Curriculum Based Assessment (CBA).
  • IDEA 2004 changes beyond RTI, especially as they affect the possibility of 3-year IEPs, the potential dropping of short-term IEP objectives, procedures for resolving disagreements between parents and school districts, and how social skills are being addressed on IEPs in this era of school reform and accountability for academic achievement.

The authors did an excellent job of presenting Special Education to thier readers. The organization of the text makes it easy for the reader to follow along and makes a great reference guide for teachers in the classroom!

Really liked this book! I purchased it because I'm taking a teacher credential class at SJSU that requires the 5th or 6th edition, but I was able to use this one (4th edition) by a little extra searching so as to compare needed content. I was extremely pleased with the value of the book! If you don't mind a little extra work, you'll save a ton of money on the fourth edition compared with the cost of the later editions!!!

Good text on special populations. A lot of good strategies and explanations of terms. I know there is a newer edition so hopefully there was more updates to procedures.

It was hard to find it interesting and I was easily distracted while reading it. However, there were great points in the text.

Do you know what "collaboration" means? According to this book it's about talking to your co-workers and making sure to be nice to them....and it takes 10 text-book sized pages to explain that simple fact.

Then there's the section on laws and modern special education concerns, where each major law is given a paragraph and a half of explanation, and the acronyms for these skipped-over laws are used consistently from that point onwards without further explanation.

That's really the problem with this book. It's too much for some things, and not enough for others. The writing is about as engaging as the instructions for installing your cable tv, and the stories are well too short to carry any significant meaning.

In short...skip it. If this is your classroom textbook, as it was mine, I feel your pain.
