For Introduction to Special Education courses and issues courses in Special Education. This short, enjoyable, easy-to-read text delivers a powerful message. Unique among introductory Special Education texts in format, perspective, and tone, this uplifting volume explores the world of special education from the point-of-view of people who love what they do, presenting necessary basic information with enthusiasm, and showing just how rewarding such work can be. The authors emphasize the normalcy of exceptional individuals and the imperative to include them in everyday life at home, at school, at work, and in the community. While acknowledging that this field includes sadness and pain, the authors nevertheless take readers past those feelings to share with them the joy that comes from helping individuals reach their fullest potential, whatever that may be. The focus of the text is to explain: 1) what makes people exceptional and 2) what does one need to know to understand exceptionality.
