An up-to-date introduction to the characteristics of exceptional learners and their education Exceptional Learners: An Introduction to Special Education focuses on exceptional learners and classroom practices, as well as the psychological, sociological, and medical aspects of disabilities and giftedness. Based on the authors' premise that professionals working with exceptional learners need to develop not only a solid base of knowledge, but also a healthy attitude toward their work and the people whom they serve, this book is designed to reach the heart as well as the mind. It asks both general and special educators to challenge themselves to acquire a solid understanding of current theory, research, and practice in special education, and to develop an ever more sensitive understanding of exceptional learners and their families. The 14th Edition includes the new definitions of Specific Learning Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Emotional and Behavioral Disorders, and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) from the American Psychiatric Association's DSM-5, along with expanded coverage of topics like Universal Design for Learning, Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS), and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). Also available with MyLab Education MyLab(tm) is the teaching and learning platform that empowers you to reach every student. By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, MyLab personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student.

The first survey of its kind to be published, Educating Exceptional Children is highly regarded for its academic and authoritative approach. The text provides both practical applications on how to adapt teaching methods, curriculum, and settings to meet the needs of students with disabilities, and analysis of ecological factors that influence the exceptional child, both in and outside of the classroom. The Eleventh Edition features an increased emphasis on trends and topics of debate, such as inclusion, the No Child Left Behind Act, and transitioning the student from school to work. Case studies drawn from real-life situations help students understand how general education teachers deal with immediate issues including parental concerns, family service plans, and adapting the classroom according to a student need. Chapter organization divides the text into three main sections: Introduction and History, High Incidence Disabilities, and Low Incidence Disabilities. Coverage of key standards begins in Chapter 2 and is referenced throughout the text and ancillary materials. Many of the student activities in the text and online are linked to relevant Key Standards, and a matrix included in the IRM serves as a quick reference for instructors. Up-to-date coverage includes coverage of the No Child Left Behind Act, assistive technology, and incorporating specific software and strategies into the lesson plan. Houghton Mifflin Video Cases, four- to six-minute video modules presenting real classroom scenarios, enable students to observe the day-to-day challenges and rewards of teaching from the convenience of their computers. Available on the Online Teaching and Study Centers, HM Video Cases are enhanced by classroom artifacts, Viewing Questions, Interview Transcripts, Key Terms, and bonus video footage.
