Synopsis:
This best-selling volume is widely recognized for its innovation and accessibility: it equips the reader with principles, values, and practices that support teaching the majority of students with disabilities within the scope of general education programs. The authors showcase real students with real disabilities—letting their stories illustrate, as nothing else could, the challenges faced by people with exceptionalities, and the myriad factors those working with them must consider when making decisions about how, where, and what to teach. Through four engaging themes—universal design for learning, inclusion, collaboration, and multicultural awareness—this book explores the processes necessary for using “best practices” to achieve the goals set forth by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 1997. Packaged with a CD-ROM that contains more than an hour of actual classroom footage, this book actually puts the reader “in the classroom.” This engaging book addresses general learning disabilities, emotional or behavioral disabilities, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, giftedness, mental retardation, severe and multiple disabilities, autism, physical disabilities, traumatic brain injury, communication disorders, hearing loss, and visual impairments. For special education educators, curriculum planners, therapists, school administration employees, and parents of children with special needs.

Review:

Widely recognized for its innovation and accessibility through real-life stories, the new edition of Exceptional Lives helps prepare readers to become effective special educators using four themes: universal design for learning, inclusion, collaboration, and multicultural responsiveness.

Real Kids, Real Families, Real Issues:

Every student in each chapter's opening vignette is a real person. Within each chapter as well as, in the My Voice and Making a Difference boxes, real people's stories are integrated to provide additional insight into the exceptional lives of students with disabilities, their families, their teachers, and other important professionals who impact these students' lives.

Strategies and Tips for Special Education and General Education Teachers:

Into Practice shows practical, step-by-step strategies and examples that will help pre-service general and special education teachers implement instruction in their classrooms.

Inclusion Tips provide helpful advice and strategies for inclusion in regard to specific disability issues.

Technology Tips highlight a technology teachers can use in the classroom (or one that supports classroom instruction) to help meet the educational needs of students with disabilities. (New!)

Collaboration Tips describe collaborative processes and strategies that can help teachers achieve a. particular-and appropriate goal for students with the specific disability featured in the chapter. (New!)

Including All Students:

Planning Universally Designed Learning sections in each chapter address how teachers can augment, alter, or adapt curriculum, instruction, and evaluation to assure all students' progress in the general curriculum. (New!)

Multicultural Considerations features in each chapter provide meaningful information and prepare teachers to consider the broad cultural backgrounds of their students. (New!)

Inclusive Classrooms: Video Cases on CD-ROM Activity and Learning Guide comes packaged with every copy of the text. With over an hour of video footage, this new CD-ROM provides immediate access to living classroom examples of teaching and learning strategies for inclusion. These video clips, grouped by topic and classroom, give the preservice teacher a good picture of what inclusion looks like in a preschool, an elementary school, a middle school, and a secondary school. (New!)
