This is a handbook for regular classroom teachers with students who don't necessarily qualify for special services, but are in need of special help nonetheless: Children who suffer from learning disabilities, ADD, asthma, or allergies. Children who are in foster care or victims of physical abuse. Children who live in a car or whose parents sell drugs. Children like these are becoming a growing part of today's classrooms, and as a regular classroom teacher, you face the challenging task of seeing that their needs are met - as well as the needs of your twenty-five other students. The Mainstreaming Handbook proves it is possible.
Deborah Coughlin has never been trained in special education: she is a classroom teacher retracing the processes and questions that guided her efforts to advocate and accommodate the special-needs students in her classroom. Her inquiries educated her with regard to the laws, procedures, and politics involved in working with these students. Her inquiries also helped her come to her own understandings and make her own adjustments when accommodating varying needs in the classroom. Coughlin shares the knowledge she gained in this book, explaining:
