Gargiulo believes that teachers need more than just academic knowledge about exceptionality-they need an awareness and understanding of the human side of exceptional students and their families. This comprehensive text with a 'œpeople-first' approach gives preservice teachers a firsthand look into the lives of exceptional children, their families, and their mentors. Key Features Provides 'œFirst Person' boxes and chapter-opening narratives that share the honest and engaging experiences of individuals with disabilities and their families Includes new content on deaf-blindness and RTI (Response to Intervention) Features new 'œEffective Instructional Practices' boxes with targeted teaching strategies and suggestions Provides INTASC and CEC standards and chapter-by-chapter integration grids in the appendixes as well as end-of-chapter 'œReflecting on Standards' exercises tied to the CEC knowledge and skill standards Accompanied by High-Quality Ancillaries- Qualified instructors can request these materials by calling SAGE Customer Care at 1-800-818-SAGE (7243), 6am'5pm, PT .
