Emphasizing contemporary concepts and evidence-based practices that prepare teachers for their evolving roles in the education and well-being of students with disabilities, Marilyn Friend combines current research with practical information for educators working in this challenging age of high standards and accountability.  With an emphasis on curriculum access, inclusive practices, professional collaboration, and student diversity, the third edition integrates the requirements of NCLB and IDEA legislation with evidence-based practices so that readers understand the expectations for educators and students, and learn how critical concepts translate into educational practices.
