MEDIA REVIEWS
"Browder, Spooner, and colleagues provide an outstanding overview of the major trends and issues in educating students with moderate and severe disabilities. I am particularly impressed with the chapters on teaching core academic concepts and skills, which include many 'best-practice' suggestions for teachers and other educators. I feel certain this book will become an important resource for many teachers who administer alternate assessments based on alternate achievement standards. This would be a great textbook for a school psychology course on working with students with developmental disabilities because it provides multiple concrete examples to support the understanding of graduate students who may have limited experience with this population."--Andrew Roach, PhD, Department of Counseling and Psychological Services, Georgia State University

"Current and practical. One of the book's particular strengths is its commitment to ensuring that students are provided access to the general curriculum, their IEPs are standards based, and their instructional programs address all of their needs. The text is replete with case studies and thoughtful reflections on the critical questions that special educators face every day. The value of such best practices as universal design, student-directed learning, behavior analysis, and choice making is strongly advocated throughout. This book would be perfect for an introductory course in severe disabilities."--Martin Agran, PhD, Department of Special Education, University of Wyoming

"Browder and Spooner's text represents the cutting edge in both the science and art of teaching students with moderate and significant cognitive disabilities. Teachers and teacher educators will find this volume to be a significant and useful resource."--Jacqueline F. Kearns, EdD, Human Development Institute, University of Kentucky

"Up to date, comprehensive, and thoughtfully sequenced, this book should be at the top of the list for any course on teaching students with moderate or severe disabilities. An outstanding text!"--Craig H. Kennedy, PhD, Peabody College of Education and Human Development, Vanderbilt University
