Annotation: This textbook is an introduction to special education and is intended for students in the education or teaching field and generally discusses special education as it applies to public k-12 education. The text is divided into two large sections. Section one gives the history of special education as well as its ever-changing policy and practices. Section one also looks at cultural attitudes with regard to special education and disability as well as family roles and adaptive technology. Section two breaks down different kinds of disabilities and gives each a devoted part of the text. Disabilities discussed include language and hearing impairments, autism spectrum disorder, behavioral disorders, and physical disabilities. Teaching strategies abound, as do real-life case studies and voices from actual students. Learning activities are included as well as links to video online.
