Book Description
This resource book serves to provide experienced teachers, paraprofessionals, and pre-service teachers alike with strategies to facilitate the learning of children with disabilities within the context of regular education. Basic information regarding special education laws and policies is outlined; however, this text emphasizes specific academic and social needs that children with disabilities may have, rather than stressing the cause of the disability itself. Teaching methods and adaptations that teachers or assistants can use across content areas such as cooperative learning, cognitive learning strategies, and multi-age peer teaching are explained in detail for each type of learning need.
