 Exceptional Learners is an outstanding introduction to the characteristics of exceptional learners and their education, emphasizing classroom practices as well as the psychological, sociological, and medical aspects of disabilities and giftedness.  In keeping with this era of accountability, all discussions and examples of educational practices are grounded in a sound research base.

 

With hundreds of new references added to the 12th edition, the authors are committed to bringing the most current and credible perspectives to bear on the ever-increasing complexity of educating students with special needs in today’s schools.  The authors have written a text that reaches the heart as well as the mind, promoting a conviction that professionals working with exceptional learners need to develop not only a solid base of knowledge, but also a healthy attitude toward their work and the people whom they serve, and constantly challenge themselves to acquire a solid understanding of current theory, research, and practice in special education and to develop an ever more sensitive understanding of exceptional learners and their families.

Best Textbook I’ve Ever Used To be honest, this is probably one of the best textbooks I’ve ever used. It’s a great resource that tells you about various disabilities and methods of educating those with disabilities. It’s also very clear about the laws that are currently in place for those with disabilities and gives you clear definitions of everything.I especially like the sections where it talks about real children and their disabilities and the various ways teams have worked together to develop education…

Needed for class. I bought this book because I needed it for a class, but found it quite interesting and helpful in learning more about a wide variety of exceptional learners. I did not need the online access for my class, but did not know that until after I had already bought the version with it. Since I did not use the access code I sold this textbook back to Amazon and did not keep it as a reference book. In the future though I will look for a more affordable used copy that I can hold onto.
