Widely recognized as a market leader for its innovation, strong research base, and accessibility, the ninth

edition of William L. Heward’s Exceptional Children: An Introduction to Special Education continues this

tradition of excellence.

A FOCUS ON EXCEPTIONAL TEACHERS

reflects the joys, challenges, and realities of teaching exceptional children. Drawn from urban,

suburban, and rural school districts across the country, the 18 featured teachers share personal

experiences and wisdom gathered from years of instructing children in a variety of school settings.

learn from the teachers featured in the text through video. Throughout the book,

MyEducationLab icons connect key content and concepts practiced by master teachers to

Homework & Exercises on MyEducationLab.

teachers–offered by the master teacher featured in each chapter–on how to avoid common

pitfalls in the classroom.

guidelines for designing, implementing, and evaluating instruction for students with disabilities.

· MyEducationLab Each of the research-based practices discussed in the Teaching & Learning

features are connected to Homework & Exercises or Building Teaching Skills activities in

MyEducationLab that extend and further develop these strategies through video, artifacts,

special education with the controversial issues, triumphs, struggles, and interventions involved in

special education.
