From the Back Cover:

Teaching Special Students in General Education Classrooms, 8e, benefits all students in the Inclusion and Introduction to Special Education and Courses by providing pre-service and practicing teachers with the skills needed to deal with the complex and often perplexing diversity that lies behind the classroom door. All students, particularly those with special learning needs, deserve special care and special teaching. This reader-friendly, categorically organized text takes a case-based approach to contextualize the laws, organizational information, and teaching methods educators need to know to teach all children effectively. Paying closer attention to the important ideas of Response to Intervention and Universal Design, assessment and the needs of English learners, and dedicating an entire new chapter to assistive technology, this comprehensive eighth edition continues to break new ground in preparing general educators for the challenges and opportunities of the inclusive classroom.
