Editorial Reviews

Karen Trevorrow
“A useful, quick, and easy-reference resource for school psychologists, teachers, and student welfare coordinators."
Mark Le Messurier
"The straightforward checklists provided give classroom teachers confidence to move students towards the therapeutic act of identification."
Anne Bayetto
"These checklists will not only provide valuable information to guide planning and programming, but will also serve as a focal point for discussion with families and professionals."
Psyc CRITIQUES: Contemporary Psychology
"This book is easy to read and should become a handy teacher's reference guide, not just to generate information on signs of a disability, but to lend guidance on what one should consider when attempting to teach in a way that will allow students to be successful learners. "
Curriculum Connections
"Offering general definitions of 17 common disabilities, guidelines for handling teacher concerns about students, and specific references, this volume would be a helpful addition to any professional collection."
