Overview

This engaging text and media package, designed for students of special and general education, provides a rare glimpse into the lives of persons with exceptionalities, their families, and their teachers. Focusing on human exceptionalities across the life span, it employs a traditional organization beginning with four foundations chapters covering such important topics as the historical and legal contexts of special education, service delivery models, cultural and linguistic diversity, and a full chapter on parents and families. Ten "categorical" chapters, each of which share a common organizational format, follow these chapters. The Second Edition includes a new full chapter on ADHD, "Persons with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder," reflecting growing prevalence of this disability. Each categorical chapter also features sections on transition, cultural diversity, technology, instructional strategies, and family considerations. The "Making Inclusion Work" feature, prepared by in-service teachers, offers strategies for effective inclusion and appears in most of the categorical chapters. The FREE CD-Rom includes video cases that focus on the teaching of children with exceptionalities, paying special attention to inclusion and working with families. A margin notation in the text, "Video Case Connections, directs you to specific videos that are keyed to relevant areas of text coverage.

Meet the Author

Richard M. Gargiulo's interest in special education began at the age of 10, when he first encountered residents of a local facility serving individuals with mental retardation. While working in the Milwaukee public school system, he spent three years teaching young children with exceptionalities. After this experience, he decided to pursue a Ph. D. in the areas of human learning, child development, and behavioral disabilities. Richard currently serves as Professor in the Department of Leadership, Special Education, and Foundations at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. In 1999, he was awarded this University's President's Award for Excellence in Teaching. He has also served as a Fulbright Scholar to the Czech Republic in 1991, and his research has appeared in a wide variety of professional journals. In addition to SPECIAL EDUCATION IN CONTEMPORARY SOCIETY, Richard has also authored or co-authored four other books ranging in topics from counseling parents of children with disabilities, to child abuse, to early childhood education, and most recently, young children with special needs.
