Friend's "Special Education: ""Contemporary Perspectives for School
Professionals" gives the most authentic, current, research-based
introductory account on the field of special education to date.
Advocating real teachers, real families and students, real
classrooms, and real research, this comprehensive resource
emphasizes contemporary concepts and evidence-based practices that
prepare teachers and other education professionals for their
evolving roles in education and the well-being of students with
disabilities. Combining current research with practical
information, the text offers structure and predictability for
novices to the field of special education and for educators working
in this challenging age of high standards and accountability.
Thoroughly revised and updated and throughout to provide a
multi-dimensional view of the field, with a mix of key concepts and
immediately applicable information, the new edition emphasizes: the
specific disability areas, the historical background and
characteristics of special education students, prevalence data,
assessment, service delivery, research-based instructional
practices, parent perspectives, issues related to the disability
area, curriculum access, inclusive practices, professional
collaboration, student diversity, RTI, technological advancements,
and now the text is written to reach a broader range of
professionals working in the field. Because special education is
made up of real children and real professionals, the author helps
to put a "face" on the field to enliven and authenticate the
information for novices. Each chapter features stories of
individuals with disabilities, from the parents of children with
disabilities, and from professionals who work in the field. Readers
of this truly exceptional resource will come away with the best
understanding of the expectations for educators and students, and
learn how critical concepts translate into educational practices.
