Exceptional Children: An Introduction to Special Education has always been known for its innovation, strong research base and accessibility.  The tenth edition has all of those strengths, but has a greater focus on highly effective, research-based practices that are described in a very step-by-step, applied manner.  Heward presents an informative and responsible introduction to the professional practices, trends, and research that define contemporary special education while also conveying the diversity and excitement of this changing field.  The book is for those teachers who will be professionals in the area of special education or those who are working with students that have exceptionalities.
