Recommends it for: teachers/educators
Recommended to Anna by: my sped professor
This was my textbook for a graduate level course on exceptional students. It's a good book in the sense that it gives you a solid overview of most disabilities as well as current legislation that affects educators as well as the students that they are responsible for teaching. It's not the most recent edition, so it doesn't have the most up-to-date NCLB info, but it's still quite helpful and I plan to keep it around as a resource.
