About this title

Synopsis:

This timely volume provides a complete guide to designing and implementing personalized curricula for K-12 students with moderate and severe disabilities. The author delineates a comprehensive assessment model that provides a framework for pinpointing educational priorities, planning instruction in specific areas, and evaluating student progress. Emphasizing the values of self-determination, family-centered planning, multicultural awareness, and educational accountability, the strategies presented are teacher-friendly and data-based. Case studies in every chapter illustrate the educational needs and accomplishments of students with a variety of disabilities, including autism, mental retardation, severe behavior disorders, and multiple disabilities. Further enhancing the practical utility of the volume are sample assessment notes, reports, and instruction plans; inventories of key skills in different domains; and descriptions of commercially available instructional resources. Included are more than 15 reproducible forms. An ideal undergraduate or graduate-level text, this is also an invaluable resource for teachers, school psychologists, and other special education professionals.

From the Back Cover:

"This book is a valuable tool to prepare teachers to work with students with significant disabilities in the classrooms of the 21st century. The strength of the text is its breadth and functionality: It covers an unusually wide array of topics while maintaining a user-friendly and applied focus. The emphasis throughout on self-determination and student involvement ensures that educators will be prepared to provide services and supports that are student based. The 1997 amendments to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act emphasized that all students must have access to a challenging curriculum. This text will enable teachers working with students with moderate and severe disabilities to meet that important objective." Michael L.Wehmeyer, PhD, Beach Center on Families and Disability, University of Kansas "Diane Browder's latest book comes at an opportune time. The text is comprehensive and fills an important gap in the professional literature. Browder does an outstanding job of linking assessment and curriculum in ways that reflect exemplary practices. The numerous examples, charts, and forms are extremely helpful in translating the theory and research into practice. I recommend this book to professors teaching courses in the area of severe disabilities and to anyone in the field interested in assessment and curriculum." Michael F. Giangreco, PhD, Research Associate Professor, Center on Disability and Community Inclusion, University of Vermont, Burlington, Vermont
