Editors: MaryAnn T. Burton
Book Description:
Special education is the individually planned and systematically monitored arrangement of teaching procedures, adapted equipment and materials, accessible settings, and other interventions designed to help learners with special needs achieve a higher level of personal self-sufficiency and success in school and community than would be available if the student were only given access to a typical classroom education. Students with special needs, such as learning differences, mental health issues, specific disabilities (physical or developmental, and giftedness are those whose needs are addressed within the classroom setting. Generally however, the term "special education" refers specifically to students with learning disabilities, mental conditions, and other disabling conditions. This new book presents the latest research in the field.
