Prepare and inspire teachers to ADAPT to the needs of all their students! Using the research-validated A-D-A-P-T model as an instructional guide, problem-solving approach and mnemonic, this new book clearly promotes the thoughtful practices and adaptations which have been proven as the most effective means to teach hard-to-reach students. It inspires classroom teachers to want to meet the challenges of students with disabilities and other learning challenges in their classroom and then gives them the tools to do it confidently.
"The ADAPT feature offers a consistent strategy, it's very good. It seems quite different from many of the other intro books. It has more information, more research info and more practical information combined."
Kathy McMahon Klosterman, Miami University
