Lots of good information on working with families of children with special needs. Some information is redundant, but there is a lot of new info too. Also, I read the 6th edition.
I thought this book was a great outline of IDEA and NCLB. The authors also did a great job demonstrating true partnership between families and providers. A must read for anybody working in the education field or servicing children with disabilities.

Recommends it for: parent educators, community development
Before empowerment was a term, these folks put together the best strategy for bringing communities for the betterment of children.
