All of the special education teachers at my school will have copies of this practical guide.'uMarybeth Sandvig, Principal, Manitoba K-8 School, Milwaukee, WI This practical guide is for novice special education teachers or for experienced teachers who are new to special education.aThe authorsacover some of the most critical challenges these teachers face, including specially designed instruction, legal responsibilities, positive behavioral supports, and working with co-teachers, teacher assistants, families, support staff, administrators, and others within the school community.This useful book offers 80 clear, concise, well-organized, teacher-tested, and easy-to-access strategies, each involving five or fewer points and none requiring extensive pre-planning prior to implementation.
