Review quote

"ideal for the classroom teacher who wants to make sure that he or she is up to date on the subject but does not have time to read a lengthy tome." "appealing to look at and easy to read, the text being broken up by boxes, charts and illustrations that add clarity." "a very good read for classroom teachers and teaching assistants." Mary Kelly, The British Journal of Special Education Support for Learning, Vol.34, No.2, 2007--Sanford Lakoff
