The information in the book is presented well, clear, easy to understand. The book itself is good. My low review comes from the format. I bought the kindle version as a textbook for class, and for that purpose it is almost useless. There is no linked table of content, not page numbers, only the basic location feature. It works fine as a reference but is almost useless in class because it's almost impossible to find a specific location in the book. If your professor gives you an assignment to read pages 101-150, for example, you will need to find a print copy, see what is in the page, then scroll through the kindle book to find that location. Fix this and you'll have a great e-text book.

This book is a must-have for ANY teacher or prospective teacher. I am an English Education major but I am also a music teacher, and this book has provided me with wonderful insight for some of my students.

The key terms are bolded and off to one side, which is a bonus for any college student. The summaries at the end of each chapter are comprehensive and adequate. Not only that, but the book is extremely easy to read even if you don't understand things like Public Laws or state curriculum. It also provides additional resources for every single chapter.

Overall, well written, interesting and insightful. The price on Amazon is also very fair, you can't buy this cheaper anywhere else.

I bought this as a gift to my girlfriend's online class. She used this book during her online quizzes and she did quite well. She used it about 3 times a week and thought it had some good information. However, some of the questions posted on the online quiz was more appropriate for an earlier version. Regardless, it didn't have any effect and was still a good product.

I was told I would not receive this book until February or March but I got it just a couple days ago. I love this book and I cannot wait to use it to continue my teaching experience. I highly recommended buying this book if you're special ed/early childhood major like myself, or if your a teacher that has an inclusion classroom. This book will help you to understand the different types of disabilities and how/what to do in general situations.
