Overview


This book, which set the standard for students working toward certification in special education, includes a cross-categorical emphasis that makes it suitable for a broad number of courses, including those aimed at teaching students with mild disabilities and which are part of many states' certification requirements.

This book has been an invaluable resource for me as a special educator.  Initially, I rented it and while taking a class that utilized this book I realized how important the information was so I went back and purchased it after the class was over.  I highly recommend this to anyone interested in the basics of special education.
