An exciting new text whose humanistic emphasis on the "exceptional lives" of students with disabilities, and a "people-first" perspective, enlivens and enriches the experience as future special and regular educators gain the knowledge base they need to do the jobs they want to do. Comprehensive coverage is built upon six guiding principles: 1) High expectations for individuals with disabilities and their educators, 2) inclusion for all students, 3) relationships and friendships as essential outcomes of collaboration, 4) positive contributions by students with disabilities, 5) the importance of choice and self-advocacy for students with disabilities, and, 6) full citizenship for all students with disabilities. The authors emphasize the daily lives of students with disabilities; their families, friends, and educators; and related service providers...bringing to life both the practices of special education and the individuals involved.From the Back Cover:
