Synopsis:
Using the themes of inclusion and collaboration, the authors provide an overview of all the major disabilities, including autism, ADHD, and traumatic brain injury. Extended vignettes of real children begin each chapter and are then carried through each chapter. The role of families and people from the community are emphasized throughout. The purpose of this text is to equip general and special education teachers with the principles, values and teaching practices that support the inclusion of the majority of students with disabilities into general education programs.
