Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

I believe that the authors’ approach to the subject matter is practical and presented in a manner that makes the reader want to read the book from front to back.

Mary Darlene Hilsenbeck, University of Louisville

The readability is ideal for the undergraduate student. It contains enough theoretical, research-based information to be a strong text. It also contains practical information that students will want to retain this text as they become practitioners. The organization of the book is ideal. The included standards are ideal as students study for state certification exams. “Technology Today”, “Rights & Responsibilities”, and “Evidence-Based Practice” are gems of information.

Glenna Bilingsley, Texas State University — San Marcos

The application connection couldn’t be any better than what your authors have put together for the reader and future teacher. I am very impressed with the wealth of information and suggestions your authors have provided for the reader that cover almost every aspect of learning disabilities. This book helps teachers use the tools they have to de3velop their students into productive members of society and prepare them for the future. The information just flowed and all came together outlining an effective inclusive program for students with disabilities and the best practices to prepare students for their future.
