This text uses a straightforward approach and a highly personalized tone to present research and teaching practices, emphasizing the effects of disabilities on the lives of individuals, their families, and their teachers. Themes of commonality and collaboration encourage respect, minimize teacher anxiety, and de-emphasize the typical clinical approach to this content. "Portfolio Activities" help students prepare for their careers and provide resources such as online templates. Multicultural coverage has been fully integrated as a result of the advisory work of nationally known specialist Festus Obiakor (University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee). Enhancements to the companion Web site provide greater integration of print and online content, as well as links to further research on special education. This updated version includes an 8-page insert highlighting the 2004 IDEA Reauthorization Legislation—the history of this important legislation, why the reauthorization was needed, and what the changes included—as well as a table correlating the new HM Video Cases to specific chapters in the book. Award-winning HM Video Cases have been added to the Online Teaching and Study Centers. These 4- to 6-minute cases present actual classroom scenarios that depict the complex challenges and opportunities teachers face every day. They are accompanied by classroom "artifacts," viewing questions, key terms, and bonus videos.

The integration of children with special educational needs was a crucial issue for the 1990s. Many countries were reassessing and reorganising their systems of provision in the light of legislation to provide entitlement for all. There was noticeable worldwide trend away from entirely separate provision for learners with special educational needs. At the same time there was no agreement on how exactly they should be integrated with other students. The reader will gain a clear understanding of educational provision, the societal forces that push for greater integration and the attitudes that promote or hinder educational success.

The evil prosthesis of Captain Hook, the comical speech of Porky Pig, and the bumbling antics of Mr. Magoo are all examples of images in our culture which can become the basis of negative attitudes and subliminal prejudice towards persons with disabilities. These attitudes influence and underlie discriminatory acts, resulting in negative treatment and segregation. A teacher's ability to recognize and counter such images may well determine the success of inclusion and mainstreaming programs in our schools and society. Well-researched and well-written, this book offers practical guidance as grounded in solid research to schools that are wrestling with how to mainstream children with disabilities.
