This text focuses on integration and special education in the regular or general education classroom. The author gives a thorough overview of disability from a personal, historical, and multicultural perspective. The author weaves two case studies throughout the entire book, enhancing the readability of the text, as well as its teaching potential. These case studies appear at the end of each chapter and underscore the preceding lessons and chapter themes. Critical thinking questions then follow the case study, giving the student an opportunity to apply what they have learned.
