9780205444212: Exceptional Learners: Introduction to Special Education (10th Edition)

There are good reasons why Exceptional Learners has been the introductory text trusted to prepare hundreds of thousands of special education and general education teachers. Its depth, lucidity, clarity, and coherence combine to make a text appropriate for students at all levels: graduate and undergraduate, from introductory to advanced. Continuing its reputation as the standard bearer in the field for accuracy, currency, and reliability, the tenth edition increases its coverage of Autism Spectrum Disorders, collaboration and co-teaching, research-proven classroom applications, and references to professional standards (CEC and INTASC), and includes information on the 2004 IDEA reauthorization and its implications.

From the Back Cover:

“Over the years the Hallahan and Kauffman text has remained a constant and credible source for our candidates seeking certification. As the legislation is updated, the text has been updated to reflect the changes, issues, and trends. Students taking the state certification exams report that review of the text and practice questions before sitting for a state exam actually helped them achieve the desired passing score.”

–Maribeth Montgomery Kasik, Governors State University

 

Exceptional Learners is an outstanding introduction to the characteristics of exceptional learners and their education, emphasizing classroom practices as well as the psychological, sociological, and medical aspects of disabilities and giftedness.  In keeping with this era of accountability, all discussions and examples of educational practices are grounded in a sound research base.

Review:

“These are some of the major reasons why we adopted this text — readability, clarity, unity and coherence. To this list, I would like to add relevance. Students state they didn’t understand a concept before, but now they do.”

- Dr. Janice Ferguson, Western Kentucky University

“I like the categorical feature of this book. It is clear in its descriptions and has great supplemental materials. It is well written and is easy to read. The chapters are very complete in addressing issues that are associated with each disability.”

- Deborah Childs, University of Saint Louis 

 

“The text is very engaging and interactive in its writing style — a significant factor for preservice teachers new to special education content. It is visually pleasant and inviting.”

- Chris O’Brien, University of North Carolina — Charlotte 

 

“The strength of the text lies in the authors’ care in covering the major concepts of the field simply.”

- Terry E. Spigner, University of Central Oklahoma 

 

“The text’s illustrations provide the reader with contextual information while making the reader’s experience more appealing. The overall physical appearance invites the reader to become a part of the learning experience.”

- Jaques Singleton, University of Memphis
