This book discusses some of the core philosophical concepts in special education and provides an in-depth look at future possibilities. Will the field function much as it does today or make coherent changes? How will the heated debates about full inclusion, labeling, and definitions of disabilities play out? How will the research on instructional practices and teacher preparation generate changes? "Challenging Orthodoxy in Special Education" will be of considerable interest to professionals and students in special education, disability studies, educational administration, curriculum, and policy studies.
