Summary

This text provides a comprehensive, practical foundation and guide for preparing school personnel and families to work together in the education of students with special needs. The book addresses the roles and responsibilities of all educators at school, while working with families and in their communities, to allow them to provide services that will help students with special needs achieve and develop their potential. The book's organization works well with the conventional formats of a special education course in collaborative school consultation at the pre-service or graduate-level , with classes for general teacher education, and with school districts'professional development plans.
