Human Exceptionality provides a uniquely multidisciplinary and lifespan approach to the study of exceptional individuals. The first half of Human Exceptionality examines the foundations of exceptionality from a multidisciplinary perspective and lifespan approach. The second half focuses on definitions, classifications, prevalence, causation, and characteristics for the major categories of exceptionality. Discussion of each disability area concludes with practical educational, medical, and social services aspects of working with people who are exceptional. Up-to-date research informs discussions that are intelligent, interesting, and humanistic. By taking a human services approach, this book is appropriate for teachers in training, as well as those who are planning to work with persons with disabilities in other human services contexts, such as psychology, social work, allied health and counseling.
