Product Overview

This thoroughly revised and updated work explores the special education process-from testing and diagnosis to IEP meetings and advocating for children with special needs. Step by step, the authors reveal the stages of identification, assessment, and intervention. They explain the legal rights of children with special needs and show how to become an active, effective member of a child's educational team, whether you are a parent or a teacher. School psychologists Linda Wilmhurst and Alan W. Brue provide significant insight into the special education process, drawing on their more than thirty-five years of working with parents and educators.

The complete Guide to Special Education is filled with valuable tools, checklists, sample forms, and sound advice. In addition, this new edition includes information on Response to Intervention (RTI), which offers a new approach to identifying learning disabilities in the classroom; expanded coverage of autism spectrum disorders and bipolar disorder; and a fully revamped Resources section.
