Overview

This is the first of two-themed volumes addressing "Current Issues and Trends in Special Education." Volume 19 covers identification, assessment, and instruction, while Volume 20 covers research, technology, and teacher preparation.

Volume 19 first delineates traditional topics such as identification, assessment, and labeling by reviewing historical aspects and then discussing current concerns. Then, this volume addresses newer innovations and issues related to placement and inclusion, scientifically supported and unsupported interventions, instructional methods such as response to intervention and positive behavioral supports, and programming students with challenging conditions such as attention deficit hyperactivity and autism spectrum disorders.

The field of special education constantly changes as a result of legislation, new instructional formats, and current research investigations. It can be difficult for general and special educators, school counselors and psychologists, administrators, and practicing clinicians to keep up with these changes and be current in all areas relating to special education. The special education literature knowledge base should reflect these changes; however, there is no current resource that effectively and comprehensively does this. The purpose of Current Issues and Trends in Special Education is to fill this void, providing chapters written by active researchers and practitioners in their respective areas.
