The text that set the standard for students working toward certification in special education has been revised and updated to meet the needs of a new generation of teachers and students. Written for undergraduate and graduate students who are majoring in general education or special education, the book features a cross-categorical emphasis that makes it suitable for a broad number of courses-including those aimed at teaching students with related disabilities and those teaching students on the Autism Spectrum. The authors describe the characteristics of learning disabilities as well as other disabilities, and offer practical teaching strategies for general education teachers, special education teachers, school psychologists, administrators, and related professionals. Pre-service and in-service classroom teachers, who are increasingly responsible for teaching students with special needs within general education or inclusive classrooms, will find LEARNING DISABILITIES AND RELATED DISABILITIES: STRATEGIES FOR SUCCESS, 13th Edition, especially helpful.
"This is a current and comprehensive text on learning disabilities and related disorders that includes practical adaptations that classroom teachers can implement to meet the needs of their students." - Karen Coughenour, Francis Marion University
