9780131134911: Exceptional Individuals in Focus (7th Edition)

Short, enjoyable, and easy-to-read, this uplifting book delivers a powerful message and unique perspective on special education. It explores the world of special education from the point-of-view of people who love what they do, presenting necessary basic information with enthusiasm, and showing just how rewarding such work can be. The authors emphasize the normalcy of exceptional individuals and the imperative to include them in everyday life at home, at school, at work, and in the community. While acknowledging that this field includes sadness and pain, the authors nevertheless take readers past those feelings to share with them the joy that comes from helping individuals reach their fullest potential, whatever that may be. The focus of the book is to explain: 1) what makes people exceptional and 2) what does one need to know to understand exceptionality. For future special education teachers.

From the Publisher:

Unique in format, length, perspective, and tone, this introduction to exceptionality provides basic information, but goes well beyond the essentials to give students a "feel" for exceptional people and what it is like to work with them. It acknowledges both the sorrows that arise for individuals with disabilities AND the joys and rewards of working and communicating with a wide range of exceptional children, youth, and adults.
