    This was a great introduction to special education and the students effected by various special needs. While this book left me wondering after more practical support of students in the classroom, it did provide a broad overview of the topic as well as many resources to further investigate solutions and strategies when working with specific students. Very easy to read, each chapter followed the same outline formula when discussing categories of needs, and there was brief mention to IEP developmen This was a great introduction to special education and the students effected by various special needs.

Very easy to read, each chapter followed the same outline formula when discussing categories of needs, and there was brief mention to IEP development for each student. Overall, a solid text and great introduction to this field of study. It was not listed on Goodreads, but I studied out of the 7th edition of this book.

    This was an assigned text for a class that I withdrew from several weeks into the semester. However, being the book-nerd that I am, I continued reading it and found it on a whole to be informative, coherent and well-written, despite the overly "touchy-feely" aspects to the formatting. Great information about the history of disability recognition in America, disability law, and the particulars of living and learning with disabilities...

    This was the assigned textbook for the special education survey course I took in the fall. I found it to be an enjoyable read with lots of helpful information. Each chapter covers a different disability with a description of the disability, legal information and appropriate educational interventions. This is one book that I will not be selling. It is a great resource for someone venturing into the world of special education.

    Yes, I read the whole thing. Every chapter was assigned for a class. It was okay, but it was a very broad overview of special education that in my opinion got too "medical" in its descriptions at time. The pattern of how each chapter was set up got to be boring as well. But overall, the reference list in the back is great and I did learn a lot from this book. Yes, I read the whole thing.

    I read this for a special ed class. I don't plan on ever giving this one away as long as I'm teaching. It goes into great detail all aspects of special ed and how to best teach. The case studies are amazing examples. I read this for a special ed class. I don't plan on ever giving this one away as long as I'm teaching.

    This book is horribly written and organized. Half of it is superfluous. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. This book is horribly written and organized. Half of it is superfluous. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.

    Great book! Breaks down each individual disability. Definitely a good text book, doesn't read like a manual. Great book! Breaks down each individual disability. Definitely a good text book, doesn't read like a manual.
