Special Educators are facing new challenges at the beginning of the twenty-first century as public education is being reformed by a vision focusing on measurable student outcomes. The future course of the field will be shaped by the policy and programmatic responses to several issues, including demographic changes in student populations, a lack of certified special education teachers, criticism in the public medic for the rising costs of services, and debates about the preferred philosophy of service delivery for students with disabilities. This is a rich reference work that presents a chronology focusing on special education, its development and the important issues that both positively and negatively affect the field. Filled with practical recommendations, sample forms and enlightening examples, this is priceless resource for helping every child learn.
