Through real-life stories about children, their families, and their teachers, and through the use of the most recent evidence-based research on special education, this important book provides students with a comprehensive introduction to special education and its relationship to general education. The sixth edition provides this experience within the framework of three guiding themes: Inclusion, Partnerships, and Universal Design for Learning. Long noted for its focus on progress in general education through inclusion, families, and parent-professional partnerships, the new sixth edition ofExceptional Lives: Special Education in Today's Schools, now includes a "Values and Outcomes" end-of-chapter feature that focuses on ideal educational results as well as IEP marginal notes that allow readers to link content to practical lessons.
