Description

For General and Secondary Special Education Methods courses.Focusing on the needs of secondary-level learners with common disabilities-a group often neglected in methods courses-this text presents numerous research-proven instructional methods and strategies for addressing the learning and behavioral problems typical of adolescents with learning disabilities, behavioral disorders, and mild mental retardation. Coverage acknowledges that most of these learners will be taught in general education classes; therefore, its cross-categorical approach thoroughly examines methods that are effective "across the board" with all learners with disabilities, as well as methods specific to particular challenges. The authors address special education theory and relevant research via straightforward writing using minimal jargon and keeping concepts accessible and understandable to all.show more
