Summary

The first survey of its kind to be published, Educating Exceptional Children is highly regarded for its academic and authoritative approach. The text provides both practical applications on how to adapt teaching methods, curriculum, and settings to meet the needs of students with disabilities, and analysis of ecological factors that influence the exceptional child, both in and outside of the classroom.

The Eleventh Edition features an increased emphasis on trends and topics of debate, such as inclusion, the No Child Left Behind Act, and transitioning the student from school to work. Case studies drawn from real-life situations help students understand how general education teachers deal with immediate issues including parental concerns, family service plans, and adapting the classroom according to a student need.

  • New! Chapter reorganization and structuring divides the text into three main sections: Introduction and History, High Incidence Disabilities, and Low Incidence Disabilities.
  • New! Coverage of key standards begins in Chapter 2 and is referenced throughout the text and ancillary materials. Many of the student activities in the text and online have been linked to relevant Key Standards, and a matrix included in the IRM serves as a quick reference for instructors.
  • New! Coverage of the No Child Left Behind Act includes discussions about teacher accountability, proposed changes to traditional academic infrastructures, and ways of enhancing the overall quality of educational opportunities.
  • New! Case studies enhance the text content with real-life situations and examples.
  • New! Four-color design improves the format and presentation of the text material and pedagogy.
  • A greater emphasis on assistive technology is evident throughout the text, with special attention to technology tools and devices that can help children with disabilities. The Educational Adaptation Sections focus on incorporating specific software and strategies into the lesson plan.
  • The transition from school to community is introduced in Chapter 2 and discussed throughout the text, where appropriate.
