A Practical Guide for Special Education Professionals is a resource guidebook designed especially for students who are taking a course where time will be spent in observing or teaching in a field-based setting. The purpose of this guidebook is to provide practical information and suggestions to help the special education teacher candidate or the beginning special educator survive and eventually succeed in the school and classroom setting. This text is written to be used as a quick reference.  Thus, the chapters are presented in a brief, user-friendly format.  The guidebook's content presents an overview of the major elements in special education:  The Individualized Education Program (IEP), Classroom and Individual Behavior Management, Assessment for Instruction, Supervision of Paraprofessionals, Instructional Planning and Strategies, Collaborative Consultation, Home-School Partnerships, and Stress Reduction Strategies and Time Management Techniques. Each chapter prepares the teacher to work effectively in special education by supplying strategies and practical tips for working directly with pupils and other adults in the educational setting.
