Teaching Students with Special Needs in Inclusive Settings offers Canadian students an overview of students with disabilities, particularly those with high-incidence special needs. The text follows the authors' belief that students with exceptionalities should be included with other typically achieving but chronological-age peers, but should also be provided with the educational services appropriate for them.

        Unlike other texts in the discipline, Teaching Students both highlights the similarities and differences across Canada and frequently contrasts the Canadian situation with that of the US so that students are best informed about current special education practices throughout all of North America. Well-written and easy-to-read, this text offers a balanced presentation of theory and practice that students enjoy using, with evidence-based teaching suggestions that are very clear and helpful.
