Summary

Interactions, Fourth Edition, provides a cutting-edge look at how teams of school professionals-classroom teachers, special education teachers, and counselors-can effectively work together to provide a necessary range of services to students with special needs. This book addresses collaboration as a style, with accompanying knowledge and skills, which guides practices in many education efforts. As a result, future teachers learn how to collaborate with school professionals and families to help special education students who are more often being placed in general classroom settings. For all educators and people interested in education.
