Overview

This engaging text, designed for students of special and general education, provides comprehensive coverage of human exceptionalities across the life span. It employs a traditional organization beginning with four foundations chapters covering such important topics as the history of special education, key litigation and legislation, including up-to-date coverage of the reauthorization of the IDEA, service delivery models, cultural and linguistic diversity, and a full chapter on parents and families. Nine "categorical" chapters, each of which follows a common format, follow these chapters. The book features a strong emphasis on inclusion with coverage of inclusion in each of the categorical chapters. Each categorical chapter also features sections on transition, multicultural consideration, and use of technology.
