From the Inside Flap:

Education for All

When it was passed in 1975, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act was a historic piece of legislation that guaranteed all students with disabilities the right to a free and appropriate public education. Thirty years later noted practitioners, advocates, policy makers, researchers, individuals with disabilities, and parents gathered at Loyola Marymount University to discuss the current practices in the field and make recommendations for the future. This book is a result of that event.

Education for All offers an important resource for educators and parents who teach and support students with disabilities. The book includes contributions from noted authorities in special and general education including Mary Falvey, Diane Haager, Robert Rueda, and Janette Klingner. They address the important overarching issues in the field and focus on topics that are relevant to students no matter what their individual disability. Topics include:

  • Providing appropriate instructional practices for struggling learners

  • Establishing early intervention in K-12 settings

  • Including students with disabilities in general education settings

  • Working collaboratively with families aspartners

  • Reducing the disproportionate representation of minorities in special education programs

  • Implementing special education law for the benefit of all children and families

Each chapter contains a review from well-known professionals and includes a reflective essay from practitioners in the field such as classroom teachers, parents, administrators, school psychologists, and individuals with disabilities—thus ensuring a true balance of research, school-based practices, and personal experiences. In addition, the book contains discussion questions that can help prompt a fruitful dialogue.

Royalties from the book will be donated to Fiesta Educativa, Inc., a non-profit agency whose goal is to support families of individuals with disabilities.
