Students with moderate and severe mental retardation
Every teacher needs to understand the strategies and methods necessary to make their classrooms effective for all students: mainstream, special needs, gifted, and culturally and linguistically diverse. In particular, teachers in special education and general education classrooms need to feel comfortable with their knowledge of identifying students with special needs, the referral process, individual education plans, educational laws, parent communication, management of students with disabilities, and much more.
The fifth edition of Special Education for All Teachers has expanded the content to focus on relevant and practical issues in educating students with special needs and students who are at risk for learning problems. For each disability or learning challenge, this text defines the condition and explains the associated characteristics. It also addresses assessment and classroom management strategies, including specific instructional methods.
