This handbook is designed to provide teachers with an easy-to-use reference on the myriad of special needs they may encounter in their classrooms. Based on up-to-date research and over 40 years of combined classroom experiences, the book provides quick "tours" of each special need and then offers positive ways to help children with special needs reach their full potential. It gives explanations and practical examples to help teachers understand the motives and needs of a child with special needs, and ways to help motivate the child. --ERIC Clearninghouse on Disabilities and Gifted Education
