Description

This title is only available as a loose-leaf version with Pearson eText.

 

From the best-known authors in the field of family and professional collaboration—here is a practical look at how teachers and families can empower, collaborate, and advocate for children with special needs. In this book, the authors enter the lives and tell the stories of families they consider “forces for the disability cause,” and “exemplars of all that is good, decent, generous, steadfast, and optimistic.” In Families, Professionals, and Exceptionality readers see how lasting partnerships can be formed between members of families and professionals in special and general education. The authors, widely recognized authorities in the field of family and professional collaboration, present strong depictions of family systems theory, the history and current status of policy, and the principles of partnership and their application by teachers and other professionals. Included is invaluable practical advice for educators—and true ways to apply these principles on the job.
