Describes the characteristics of students with mild disabilities, and clearly explains the best teaching practices for inclusive education, behavior management, social skill instruction, and modifying classroom instruction for students with mild disabilities, including learning disabilities, mild intellectual disabilities and emotional disturbance.
This new edition includes an elaboration of Response to Intervention (RTI), which since the last edition has become a focal point of research and literature among general and special educators. This is a dynamic progression of cooperation between general and special education - primarily due to changes in the federal law regarding how students with learning disabilities are identified.
Highlights of the New Edition:
Intended for general and special education majors at the graduate and undergraduate levels, this text provides an overview of the characteristics of students with mild mental retardation, behavior disorders, and learning disabilities. It then describes the teaching practices that are best suited for these students. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
