Beschreibung

Currently, special educators are being asked to address varied needs of children with disabilities placed together in cross categorical settings. This handy guide provides educators with a clear understanding of IDEA definitions for learning disabilities, emotional/behavioral disorders, mental retardation, and autism. From there, readers will learn the key strategies that work best for each grouping of students and how to enhance the curriculum or created lessons for cross categorical groups. This unique book offers teachers a means to be an effective special educator across the spectrum of their duties.
