This book's mission is to integrate knowledge and practice from the fields of disability studiesand special education. Parts I & II focus on the broad, foundational topics that comprise disability studies (culture, language, and history) and Parts III & IV move into practical topics (curriculum, co-teaching, collaboration, classroom organization, disability-specific teaching strategies, etc.) associated with inclusive education. This organization conforms to the belief that least restrictive environments(the goal of inclusive education) necessarily emerges from least restrictive attitudes(the goal of disability studies). Discussions throughout the book attempt to illustrate the intersection of theory and practice.
