This textbook introduces preservice and inservice educators to the theories, philosophies, concepts, and ongoing needs of children and adults with exceptionalities. The first two Chapters address the foundation, litigation, and federal policies that helped shape what is now known as special education. Subsequent Chapters provide readers with a thorough analysis of the disability categories covered under IDEIA (2004) including definitions, characteristics, prevalence, and accommodations. Further each Chapter provides basic explanations of both theory and practice teachers can use to support learners with exceptionalities. Finally, current issues and future trends are examined through the lens of the needs and supports for both the child and their family who participate throughout the special education process.
