Abstract
Over the past several years, the trend toward educating students with special needs in inclusive settings has, if anything, accelerated. As a result general education teachers need more than ever before to understand the nature of special education, the characteristics of children with special needs, strategies to work effectively with them, and techniques for forming partnerships with special educators and parents. This book takes a non-categorical approach and emphasizes best practices for teaching students with disabilities in inclusive settings. The focus is on identifying and adapting factors in inclusive settings in order to meet students' instructional needs and developing collaborative working relationships to enhance student success.
