EXCELLENT text that provides clear, realistic answers to questions. For me, this text is the resource I need for my methods classes. It is so reader friendly, both general educators and special educators can use its wealth of information.

All the areas are vital to students in the field of special education and can be used as a reference tool throughout their teaching careers. Jacques Singleton, University of Memphis
