“The information in this text is all valuable and important for the students we teach. Friend and Bursuck have done a comprehensive job in covering the very topics that educators should be aware of, know something about, or master. I commend the authors for such a fine job pulling together this very critical material.”

- Janetta Fleming Bradley, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

- Melina Alexander, Weber State University

 

“The use of student examples woven throughout the chapters makes the book very clear and realistic for future teachers who are coming to grips with the idea of inclusion. There are many practical and understandable real-life examples throughout the book.”
