Summary: With Making a Difference as its central theme, the Sixth Edition of this bestselling text recognizes that more than ever before, educators have the opportunity and ability to make a real difference in the educational experiences of their students with disabilities.

Students and teachers have long relied on this comprehensive overview of the field of special education and the ways in which all teachers can help students with special needs to succeed in schoo morel and reach their full potential. The text is brimming with evidence-based practices, ready-to-use teaching tips, and up-to-the minute information about technology applications and contemporary inclusive practices-all tools that teachers can use with students of all abilities, from those who struggle to the most gifted.

The text uses authentic stories from real people, current news events, and examples from contemporary popular culture to examine the positive effects of 30 years of IDEA, 15 years of ADA, and many years of social activism on the lives of individuals with disabilities, their families, and the educators and professionals who work with them.


  • "Accommodating for Inclusive Environments" boxes in Chapters 3-14 provide tips for adjusting the curriculum or environment to enhance the success of students with disabilities, and focus on the steps needed for effective integration of children with disabilities into the general education curriculum.
  • "Validated Practices" boxes in Chapters 3-14 focus on teaching methods, many for specific content areas, proven to benefit students with diverse learning needs. Included are brief descriptions of the method, as well as step-by-step guidelines for implementing it in class, showing students how practice is informed by the research.
  • Recurring Categorical Chapter Text Sections include Historical Context, Current Definitions, Characteristics, Causes, Prevention, Assessment, Early Intervention, Teaching Students with Special Needs, Transition, Collaboration, and Partnerships with Families and Communities. less
