Maintaining its widely respected and unique focus on the critical role of a variety of professionals--in education, psychology, counseling, health care, and human services--HUMAN EXCEPTIONALITY: SCHOOL, COMMUNITY AND FAMILY, Tenth Edition, is a testament to how cross-professional collaboration can and does enhance the lives of exceptional individuals and their families as it strengthens and supports the work of the professionals themselves. After a comprehensive six-chapter introduction to the foundation and challenges across the lifespan for people with exceptionalities, the successive nine chapters focus on definitions, classifications, prevalence, causation, and characteristics of the major categories of exceptionality. Categorical chapters also provide practical information on the educational, medical, and social services aspects of working with people who are exceptional. An excellent resource for pre-service and in-service teachers as well as a range of human services professionals, the book's unique, human approach combines the most current research, detailed personal stories about exceptional persons, and fresh pedagogical features that help students understand and apply the material.
