The students you teach.
With a clear focus on the nature and characteristics of students with the four most prevalent disabilities, this revision allows students and professors to concentrate on the issues that most commonly faced in a school setting. The text explores the cognitive, perceptual, language, academic learning, and social/emotional characteristics of students with Mild Mental Retardation, Learning Disabilities, ADHD, and Emotional/Behavioral Disorders.
With real stories and cases, and additional resources on the web, this book provides students and teachers with a clearer understanding of the ways children with these disabilities present themselves in the classroom, provides strategies for use when teaching these individuals, and emphasizes the complex nature of mild disabilities.
“...I am impressed by (Learners with Mild Disabilities) “global view” and the reality of dealing with a cluster of issues around individuals with mild disabilities. This book begins with a realistic and promising premise that is useful from a functional educational perspective...the case studies and initial descriptions were superb and resulted in excellent discussions in my class.”
