About 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.
