About this book


Although much has been written about both special education and inclusive education, the two concepts and approaches have rarely been addressed within a single volume. Inclusive Special Education: Evidence-Based Practices for Children with Special Needs and Disabilities provides a unique synthesis, setting special education within the context of inclusive education. It posits that to include all children with special educational needs effectively in schools requires an integration of both concepts, approaches, and techniques.

Key topics featured in the book include:

•  Effective teaching strategies for inclusive special education

•  Teaching children with a wide range of special needs and disabilities

•  Organization of schools for inclusive special education

•  Skills for collaborating with professionals and parents

•  Developing a comprehensive system of inclusive special education

Inclusive Special Education is essential reading for scientist-practitioners, researchers, and graduate students in school psychology and counseling, educational psychology, and social work who are concerned with identifying and implementing effective practices and guidelines for children with special needs.
