The new edition of this leading text has been written as a "source book" in the area of special needs education. It is suitable for undergraduate students looking for basic information, whilst having sufficient depth to interest those with more extensive experience in education or related disciplines. Extensively revised and updated the text places even greater emphasis on inclusion, while continuing to discuss a wide range of issues as they affect students in regular and special education settings. The book aims to help students understand the special needs area, and through the provision of practical strategies, how education can best serve the diverse needs and interests of students with special needs.
