Written in a reader-friendly style with many examples and suggestions, Effective Inclusion Strategies for Elementary Teachers addresses some of the very important issues elementary school teachers face when working with students with disabilities. Topics include an overview of disability laws and definition of inclusion, followed by chapters on students with specific disabilities (autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, learning disabilities, emotional and behavioral disorders, speech and language impairments, hearing impairments, visual impairments, orthopedic impairments, and intellectual disabilities).The remaining chapters in this book discuss the very important topics of technology, collaborating with families, and Response to Intervention. This guide for elementary school teachers is a resource they can come to back to over and over again!

A great resource for teachers
This book is, above all, a resource for teachers. In the early chapters, it identifies and explains different types of learning challenges that have been categorized by specialists, and also breaks down the current laws governing the education of children diagnosed with these disabilities. Subsequent chapters deal specifically with each category and give real life examples of helpful techniques and structuring tips to address the specific learning needs of these children and integrate them into the average classroom. I do not recommend attempting to read this book from cover to cover, outside of an educational course. Instead, I recommend that every teacher use this book as a resource to familiarize themselves with the different special education categories so that they can identify these students, and refer to the associated chapter and strategies as needed. I do believe that with the current system of integrated classrooms, EVERY teacher should have access to a book like this.
