Help in the inclusive classroom
We all need a little help now and then, and for educators in inclusive classrooms a little more help just arrived! A second edition of Brief References of Student Disabilities ...With Strategies for the Classroom has been published by Corwin Press. This updated reference provides information on common disabilities found in classrooms such as AD/HD, bipolar disorder, down syndrome, epilepsy and more! A brief description of each disability with common characteristics and background information is presented with a reading list, strategies for teachers, and organizations to contact for more information. In addition, the book provides readers with an overview of the laws concerning students with disabilities, a review of health disorders, and a list of children's book to help awareness and understanding. Indiana residents can contact us to check out this book, and others can go to worldcat.org to find it in a library near you.
