Review:

"I am most impressed by the high quality of the information and broad range of coverage of this text, which, while thorough and rigorous, has many appealing features and a writing style that is easy to understand and reader-friendly. I plan to use this book in my own work, as it provides an up-to-date source that helps the reader understand the importance of inclusion and social justice as well as effective instructional settings and practices for intellectually disabled students."

--James McLeskey, Professor, School of Special Education, School Psychology, and Early Childhood Studies, University of Florida

"An essential text, Cognitive and Intellectual Disabilities provides a complete foundation in special education, grounded in an historical perspective of pivotal events, research, and legislation that have shaped the field. The guiding questions and additional online sources will challenge readers to evaluate and apply the information presented. This book equips future teachers with the knowledge needed to effectively implement best practices for educating students with disabilities."

--Fred Spooner, Ph.D., Professor of Special Education and Child Development, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
