Review:

Fifteen reports of research projects performed on improving education for disabled students at all levels [...] "organized into sections: technology, transition, and inclusivity" [...] "The annotated table of contents and index make it easy to find chapters of interest, while the compilation of references and definitions of key terms encourage further research and study in the field. These studies can be reproduced, and also provide theory and practical ideas for implementation and changes in one's own setting." --Sara Marcus, American Reference Books Annual, Vol. 43
