A supplementary casebook for courses in Collaboration/Consultation and Families in Special Education. This engaging new text presents real stories of 10 families with children who have special needs. Each is written by a family member, in his or her own words, with minimal author involvement. The stories reflect people from across the country, from different income levels, diverse racial and ethnic groups, and families with children of various ages with various disabilities. The case study approach helps readers tie research and theory to real life in a meaningful way; first person accounts promote acceptance and respect for children and their families; and the array of pedagogical features elicits involvement in foundational theories and concepts and promotes skill development.
