Overview

Using a cross-cultural orientation, this practical book provides instructional strategies for creating inclusive classrooms for all students, regardless of disability, gender, socioeconomic status, family structure, ethnicity, or native language. The book identifies factors that contribute to successful mainstreaming; translates research into practical techniques; and clarifies the responsibilities of each member of a mainstreaming "team." It provides practical examples and teaching suggestions that reflect the realities of the classroom. It includes practical information on instructional technology and assistive devices as well as agencies and organizations that provide resources and services to educators, families, and students. It also covers legislation and litigation related to inclusion. The third edition has been reorganized with expanded and updated coverage of the latest information. The first three chapters now contain material that had been presented in the first two chapters of the previous edition. An essential resource of the latest information for educators and professionals with mainstreaming responsibilities.
