The new fifth edition includes: increased coverage of families and collaboration; a broader range of tips and strategies for teachers and different learning environments; a stronger emphasis on the core standards from the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) and PRAXIS; and a brand-new, text-specific DVD of videos highlighting the people in the chapters and adults with disabilities that continues and extends the Turnbull's tradition of learning about special education through the real lives of real people living with disabilities.
NEW! "Real Lives and Exceptionalities" DVD comes with every copy of the text--This remarkable new DVD includes video footage of individuals featured in the chapter opening vignettes, a hallmark feature of Exceptional Lives. A total of five real people from Chapter 2, Chapter 6, Chapter 12, and Chapter 16, are featured in five segments that cover aspects of school, families, and community. Additionally, an extraordinary segment, "Beyond School" highlights nine individuals as they pursue life outside of school, in the workplace, enjoying hobbies, and engaging in community interests, demonstrating the lifelong goal of purposeful and productive lives. These individuals represent a successful transitioning into adulthood and show the myriad of ways that individuals with exceptionalities live active, exciting lives.

Margin notes within the text also guide readers to relevant segments of the DVD for viewing.

"Your Own Voice"--Continuing the focus of connecting readers in personal ways to the content of the book, this unique feature presents situations (e.g., a dilemma, particular perspective, challenge) and readers are asked to think about the situation, investigate some possible resources, and take a position.
Helps readers formulate personal perspectives, positions, and beliefs regarding their professional responses to situations they might encounter in the classroom, working with professionals, administrators, and family members.
Readers will construct in "their own voice" a reflection on the impact that they and others can make, challenging them to think hard about what should or could be done and what they would do as a teacher using the techniques described, under the laws that govern the education system, and pursuant to the recommended values.
