Review:
<>Principal. Practical. Prevailing.

The second edition of Understanding Physical, Health, and Multiple Disabilities proves itself once again to be the most current and applied characteristics text on the market. Readers of the newly updated text will attain the greatest understanding of students with a wide range of physical, health and multiple disabilities. The authors further the subject matter by including not only implications to the classroom, but keys on how to best apply this new knowledge to teaching practice. Unique to characteristic books on the market, Understanding Physical, Health, and Multiple Disabilities has "knowledge to practice" chapters that provide practical information related to the various sections of the book. Students will gain a clear insight to physical, health, and multiple disabilities commonly found in the school setting, including neuromotor impairments, orthopedic and musculoskeletal impairments, sensory loss, degenerative and terminal illness, health impairments, and infectious diseases. The text allows future teachers to come away with the best preparation for providing a safe, healthy school environment and an effective teaching environment for all children with physical, health, and multiple disabilities.

 

Special Features Include:

  • “Knowledge to practice" chapters provide practical information relating to the disabilities in that section allowing students to apply the information they learned in the previous chapters to a content area that they will need to address in the school setting.
  • Features foundation chapters that lay the groundwork for working with students who have physical, health, and multiple disabilities including content on understanding disabilities and effective teaming; learning and behavioral characteristics; and motor development, characteristics, and interventions.
  • Each disability-specific chapter provides a concrete framework for students to read through the chapter with ease of understanding. Featured in each of these chapters is a description of the disability, dynamics, characteristics, detection, treatment, course, educational implications, meeting physical/sensory needs, communication needs, learning needs, daily living needs, and  psychosocial/behavioral needs.
