    It didn't cover everything that I was expecting. I had hoped to get a little more practical and specific strategies and ideas for working with special needs students. They did throw in a few here and there which I promptly highlighted, marked, and wrote down. But most of the book was spent on the broadest, most tangible parts of the topics. However, the book was very informative and covered the broader scope of what it means to work with special needs students. I found it very useful.

    Great book! If you need to learn about the special education process, we found this one one of the most easy to understand. The jargon has been minimized.

    Almost too thorough with the details. This is a good resource for a SPED director to use as guiding an IS or even a principle/curriculum coach to keep on hand for research. An IS teacher might feel like some of the info is too basic or doesn’t cover more nuanced issues.

    I enjoyed reading this book. I thought there was some insightful information to help me as a special education teacher. The book is written for both parents and teachers so I felt like there were parts that weren't helpful for me as a teacher. It thoroughly discussed all thirteen disabilities classified in IDEA 2004. I was hoping to get more interventions for each of the disabilities from this guide so it was a little disappointing for me. I enjoyed reading this book.

    Was just what we needed. We already used it to understand information from two meetings we just attended at school. I brought it to the second meeting and it caught the eye of the special education coordinator. She said they are going to buy copies for their school.
