The most widely-used text on the topic of collaboration, Interactions is a guide for preprofessionals and professionals to help them understand and participate effectively in their interactions with other school professionals and parents.  It addresses collaboration as a style, with accompanying knowledge and skills, that guides practices in many education efforts.

 

Interactions provides a cutting-edge look at how teams of school professionals– special educators, general educators and related services professionals–can effectively work together to provide a necessary range of services to students with special needs. As a result, future teachers learn how to collaborate with school professionals and families to help special education students who are more often being placed in general education settings.
