Teaching Students with Severe Disabilities
presents thorough coverage of the major issues pertinent to teaching students with severe disabilities in a way that helps teachers easily understand and apply concepts in their own classrooms. Lauded as a book unparalleled for its level of currency and reality, the authors draw on their own personal experience and a broad array of professional literature to help make even the most complex research findings on severe disabilities understandable and usable in the real world of education today. Focusing on both methodology and curriculum, the authors present concise information that helps readers develop an understanding of the strengths and needs of individuals with severe disabilities, current service philosophies, and effective instructional practices for teaching these students. Thoughtful attention is paid to alternative assessments, the role of the paraprofessional, multicultural concerns, the effects of peer relationships, the use of assistive technology, early intervention, and more.
Restructured to focus on essential information and practical instructional strategies, the 6th Edition incorporates the expertise of two new authors and up-to-date coverage of the latest topics in the field.
