    DescriptionThis book is concerned with the evolution of special education policy and practice. It assesses what has been accomplished in the field over the past several decades, what remains to be done, and what must be reconsidered. Its retrospective approach allows noted authors in several areas of special education policy and practice to reflect on their previously published works, discussing the context and motivation of their writing and relating their ideas, intentions, and recommendations to present-day needs. The book is organized into seven areas of special education scholarship. Thematically, readers are introduced to a conceptual framework for integrating the broad range of perspectives in the book and to a principled stance for the field of special education whose strength lies in its diversity of interests. This title offers an evaluation of current status of special education policy & practice and what needs to be done to move forward. It discusses a conceptual framework using a reciprocal research to practice approach with an ethical focus on civic professionalism. This is the perfect text for courses dealing with issues and trends, policy and practice, and administration.
