For courses in special education, regular education, and inclusion.
This case-based text combines the best of both worlds: teaching methods/techniques and cases from inclusive education settings.
Using this case-based approach, this first edition text tackles three broad domains of special education including special education law, collaboration/co-teaching in inclusive classrooms, and methods/techniques for teaching students with disabilities in inclusive settings. Offering an innovative chapter sequence, it pairs concept chapters with case chapters to ensure readers understand core material and can apply it to real situations. A consistent five case format follows each concept chapter and highlights a variety of clinical and narrative cases.
