Expanding on its widely respected and unique focus on the critical role of professionals in education, psychology, counseling, health care, and human services, HUMAN EXCEPTIONALITY: SCHOOL, COMMUNITY AND FAMILY, Eleventh Edition, is an evidence-based testament to how cross-professional collaboration can enhance the lives of exceptional individuals and their families. Part I lays a solid foundation for understanding both the advances and the challenges across the lifespan in meeting the educational needs of students with exceptionalities in the twenty-first century. Part II focuses on cultural and linguistic diversity within the context of disability, and the importance of professional and family partnerships. Part III explores the definitions, characteristics, and multidisciplinary approaches used to meet the needs of individuals across eight categories of disability. Part IV emphasizes the special needs of those with exceptional gifts and talents. HUMAN EXCEPTIONALITY is an excellent resource for preparing teacher education candidates and practicing teachers, as well as a range of human services professionals. The book’s unique human approach combines the most current research, personal stories about people with exceptionalities, and new and innovative features that create opportunities for readers to better understand and apply the information in each chapter.
