This volume highlights major concepts in special education -- from disability categories, identification issues, and IEPs to appropriate learning environments and the roles general and special educators play. The authors provide an overview of the field of special education, provide fundamental information on definitions and terms commonly used in the field, they describe characteristics commonly associated with people who receive special education, and we provide in-depth coverage of tactics effective teachers use to make educational experiences more successful for students with those characteristics. This work introduces laws and legal cases affecting the delivery of special education services, and the full range of settings in which those services are delivered, and the principles of assessment and instruction that promote effectiveness in providing the services.

Since publication of the original edition of this book, there have been significant changes across the landscape of special education. This new edition addresses those changes and revisits enduring ethical issues that are most salient and pressing to special education teachers and administrators. Using a case-based approach, this popular text encourages students to reason and collaborate about ethical issues rather than simply master a set of principles and precepts. The issues highlighted in this volume include due process, the distribution of educational resources, institutional unresponsiveness, professional relationships, conflicts among parents and teachers, and confidentiality. The Ethics of Special Education emphasizes the perspectives and predicaments of special educators, but is also germane to the professional lives of a much wider range of individuals, from classroom teachers engaged in inclusion to administrators and school psychologists involved in negotiating IEPs (Individualized Education Programs). “Readers of The Ethics of Special Education will find real-world ethical dilemmas that reflect the current laws and trends in special education policy and practice. As a researcher in the field, a lawyer, a former teacher, and as a parent, I recommend this book for all those who help students with disabilities succeed in life. This casebook highlights the importance of reasoned exploration and empathy when attempting to solve the kind of hard questions faced by members of school communities across the nation. There are no simple answers, but for all stakeholders, this book will help you develop a clearer understanding of sound approaches to the difficult problems that you will likely grapple with.” —Daniel Losen, director, Center for Civil Rights Remedies “Opportunities to access, participate, and learn alongside a diverse range of public school students are vital to the success of students who have dis/abilities. It has never been more important for educators to work deliberately and ethically to ensure that their choices for curriculum, pedagogies, and learning outcomes benefit the learners they serve. Neoliberal politics, raced assumptions about what counts as learning, and the forced march towards globalization challenge educators. Decisions about who enters special education, for what purpose and whose benefit, are fraught. Howe and Boele’s new edition extends the vision that Miramontes had for schools that embraced all who entered.” —Elizabeth B. Kozleski, University of Kansas

Special education is now an established part of public education in the United States—by law and by custom. However, it is still widely misunderstood and continues to be dogged by controversies related to such things as categorization, grouping, assessment, placement, funding, instruction, and a variety of legal issues. The purpose of this 13-part, 57-chapter handbook is to help profile and bring greater clarity to this sprawling and growing field. To ensure consistency across the volume, chapter authors review and integrate existing research, identify strengths and weaknesses, note gaps in the literature, and discuss implications for practice and future research. Key features include: Comprehensive Coverage—Fifty-seven chapters cover all aspects of special education in the United States including cultural and international comparisons. Issues & Trends—In addition to synthesizing empirical findings and providing a critical analysis of the status and direction of current research, chapter authors discuss issues related to practice and reflect on trends in thinking. Categorical Chapters—In order to provide a comprehensive and comparative treatment of the twelve categorical chapters in section IV, chapter authors were asked to follow a consistent outline: Definition, Causal Factors, Identification, Behavioral Characteristics, Assessment, Educational Programming, and Trends and Issues. Expertise—Edited by two of the most accomplished scholars in special education, chapter authors include a carefully chosen mixture of established and rising young stars in the field. This book is an appropriate reference volume for anyone (researchers, scholars, graduate students, practitioners, policy makers, and parents) interested in the state of special education today: its research base, current issues and practices, and future trends. It is also appropriate as a textbook for graduate level courses in special education.

New Directions In Special Education

A comprehensive study that is also practical and realistic, New Directions in Special Education outlines principles for decisionmaking about special education at every level—from the family to the classroom, school, and district—and for state and federal policy. With this volume, leading scholar and disability advocate Thomas Hehir opens a new round of debate on the future of special education. Extending the conceptual framework developed in his seminal 2002 article in the Harvard Educational Review, "Eliminating Ableism in Education," Hehir examines the ways that cultural attitudes about disability systematically distort the education of children with special needs and uses this analysis to lay out a fresh approach to special education policy and practice. Hehir traces the roots of "ableism"—the pervasive devaluation of people with disabilities—and shows how negative attitudes continue to shape debates in the field. He assesses recent trends in special education policy, particularly the shift of emphasis from compliance to outcomes, and discusses in depth the successes and limitations of the inclusion movement. He also investigates the impact of standards-based reforms on children with disabilities and critically examines the promise of Universal Design for Learning.

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.

Education and training systems are under escalating stress to respon to the recent skills demands created by a swiftly changing and globalised market.

Present compilation of ideas may serve as foundation to educational institutes and educationists as key performers in the production, preservation, and dissemination of knowledge. This will definitely facilitate Re- research and enlighten academicians for their future endeavours.
