about

This book¿s mission is to integrate knowledge and practice from the fields ofdisability studiesandspecial education. Parts I & II focus on the broad, foundational topics that comprise disability studies (culture, language, and history) and Parts III & IV move into practical topics (curriculum, co-teaching, collaboration, classroom organization, disability-specific teaching strategies, etc.) associated with inclusive education.

Discussions throughout the book attempt to illustrate the intersection of theory and practice.
