Editorial Reviews

Shane Feltes
This book is a great idea! I love the mention of how inclusion is becoming more of a focus than specialized instruction is. Attempting to integrate both together is difficult and at times simply impossible. Response to intervention (RTI) won't ease the situation at all, either. The discussion of the ability to adapt is essential.
Lori McNeff
Those who are successful special education teachers have many, many wonderful and unique talents. You do not just decide to become a special education teacher on a whim. The career picks you—either through firsthand experience or, as in my case, just always knowing from a very young age what you wanted to do. Those of us who are special education teachers/administrators have jumped in with both feet. There is no only going part way. For me, it became a lifelong commitment to see that my students were as successful as possible.
