Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This abridged edition of the Encyclopedia of special education provides a reference base for educators; professionals in psychology, neuropsychology, medicine, health care, social work, and law; and non- professionals interested in the subject. Biographies of living persons have been deleted and technical and medical terms included in the original edition have been restricted in coverage to a more direct, definitional approach. Entries included have been reduced in length and technical articles have been rewritten to make them more accessible to non-professionals. Acidic paper. Annotation c.
