Special Education in Contemporary Society, Third Edition
in a whole new way- with a SAGE e-walkthrough.

"The real strength of Richard Gargiulo's text is that it does not overwhelm the readers. Learning the vast- and often complex- field of special education is no easy task. Yet, the text meets this challenge head-on." --Bruce A. Shields, Ph.D., Daemen College

"Given the myriad of introductory textbooks on the market, I have continued using Gargiulo's text as it offers a clear, understandable overview of exceptionality and a wealth of resources that compliment my instruction." --Emiliano C. Ayala, Ph.D., Sonoma State University

"The 'First Person' features are very well done and the students love them!" --Michelle LaRocque, Ph.D., Florida Atlantic University

Special Education in Contemporary Society, Third Edition provides a highly readable and research-based introduction to special education. Richard Gargiulo believes teachers need more than just academic knowledge about exceptionality they need an awareness and understanding of the human side of exceptional students and their families. Special Education in Contemporary Society, Third Edition is a comprehensive text with a "people first" approach that gives pre-service teachers a first-hand look into the lives of exceptional children, their families, and their mentors.
