An authoritative collection of the best research-based practices known to improve outcomes for targeted groups of learners.

A volume unlike any other, this book helps special educators combat the gap between research and practice by identifying specific practices proven through research to work for students with special needs. Appropriate for practitioners, teacher-educators, and policymakers, this book is written by leading authorities in the field and gathers the most meaningful research and practices regarding special populations in a single source. Chapters offer a consistent format that includes definition of strategy, theoretical underpinnings, description, fidelity checklist, and research-based summaries. Sections show how to improve outcomes for a variety of special populations from early childhood, to students with high incidence disabilities, to students with autism spectrum disorders.
