“This is one book I would recommend to everyone, both for excellence of content and the reasonable price. It should be used in teacher education courses at the undergraduate and graduate level, both for special ed majors and regular ed majors. Thank you for writing this book, and writing it in such a way that it is an easy read, easy to understand, and easy for teachers to `buy into.’”
