Review:

“This book will be the benchmark tool for the field of special education teacher training...I am excited about this book.”

Blanche Glimps, Tennessee State University

“Not only should every pre-service teacher read and study this text, every administrator should do the same...I really like this text. The writing delivers the message. It is what separates this book from so many of the others. The others “talk at students” this one “talks with them.”

Martha J. Meyer, Butler University

“The book is easy to read and provides a wealth of information for the beginning special educator. The balance between theory and practice is excellent…I find the material to be very readable and rich with examples.”

Ellyn Arwood, University of Portland

“I think the authors have done an excellent job integrating professionalism, reflection, and instructional application into all the chapters...The authors have prepared an excellent introductory text.”

 

Helen T. Dainty, Tennessee Technological University

“The book’s positive tone, realistic view of the special educator, and practical applications are an excellent combination...It should be a text that is not sold at the end of the class.”

Karen B. Clark, Indiana University, South Bend
