EDUCATING EXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN is a classic yet state-of-the-art book for Introduction to Special Education and related courses. Authored by luminaries in the special education field, it introduces readers to each of the thirteen disability categories, and to the needs of children who are gifted and talented. The Thirteenth Edition continues to focus on the strengths of previous editions, while also providing new material about such important hot topics within the field as genetics, neurology, inclusion, assistive technology, and information processing. The text provides key, research-based teaching methods and strategies for children with various exceptionalities, and also offers analysis of ecological factors that influence the exceptional child in and out of the classroom. This edition also features current coverage of the Response to Intervention Model, comprehensive and up-to-date descriptions of the characteristics associated with each disability, the most current teaching techniques for each category, and helpful references to available resources.
