The School Counselor's Guide to Helping Students with Disabilities is a practical guide for school counselors faced with the complexities of working with disabled children and youth. The book's content and organization were developed to correspond to the responsibilities and roles assumed by school counselors in elementary, middle and high school settings. Chapters focus on topics that provide practicing school counselors (or counselors in training) with the insight and tools needed to successfully promote the academic, personal, social, and career success of students with disabilities. Topics range from understanding pertinent legislation to counseling interventions to helping young children or adolescents experiencing social exclusion because of their disabilities. The book brings together experts in two disciplines, school counseling and special education/disabilities, in order to address the realties of counseling work while presenting a wealth of relevant disability-related knowledge and useful strategies.
