The introduction to special education book that truly puts people first!Special Education in Contemporary Society: An Introduction to Exceptionality is designed for use by pre-service and in-service teachers who will teach students with special needs in the general classroom. The text provides a rare glimpse into the lives of persons with exceptionalities, including their families and teachers. Focusing on human exceptionalities across the life span, the text employs a traditional organization beginning with four foundations chapters that introduce teachers to special education, followed by ten "categorical" chapters each on a different "exceptionality." Each categorical chapter features sections on transition, cultural diversity, technology, instructional strategies, and family considerations.
