Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This single most-adopted Inclusion text worldwide 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. 

 

The Sixth edition integrates today’s expectations for students with the authors’ strong commitment to inclusive practices, tempered by the realities of day-today teaching. This text provides teachers with a firm grounding in special education practices, an understanding of the professionals who support these students and the procedures followed to ensure their rights are upheld, and a wealth of research-based strategies and interventions that can foster their success.

I used this book for a training I provided for a variety of teachers ( general Ed. And special Ed.) over the course of six weeks. They enjoyed the easy read and the wealth of resources available throughout - I will definitely use this book again.

Applicable book - used in my teaching credential program for supporting students with diverse needs. I found it to be easy to read with lots of applications and relevant up to date information regarding laws and teacher responsibilities. A great textbook and reference guide for pre-service teachers, as well as 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!!!

This was a required textbook for a master's course, and it contained good information. However, it was not in very good condition. I have purchased many used books, and have always had good luck. However, this book was more beat-up than advertised.

This book is a wonderful text and very informative for the beginning educator or paraprofessional. There were a couple of inaccurately phrased statements concerning the hearing-impaired, but the information within this text is vast.

This book was advertised as "new," however, when I received it, it did not include the access code for MyEducationLab.
