The world of special education can sometimes feel like a confusing place to novice teachers and families; however, The Special Education Toolbox: Supporting Exceptional Teachers, Students and Families is a primer that everyone can use to become an expert in their own right. Beginning with a brief walk through special education history and including the basics of assessment and IEP writing, this book considers student success from a variety of perspectives to include the role of the paraprofessional, the home-school connection, and transition planning to name just a few. The Special Education Toolbox will easily be one of the most used books on the shelf in any office, classroom, or home. -- Vinnie Regan, MS, Med, Principal, Springfield Public Schools, Springfield, MA The Special Education Toolbox: Supporting Exceptional Teachers, Students and Families is a complete and easy to read tome that describes all facets of special education. Parents, administrators, novice and seasoned teachers will benefit from each chapter as it leads them through the laws, response to intervention and understanding the differences between an individualized education plan and a Section 504 plan. From there the reader is exposed to collaborating with outside providers, addressing behavioral and social deficits, and so much more. The Special Education Toolbox ends with a useful collection of resources that point readers to dig deeper into topics of interest. -- Martha H. von Mering, executive officer of special education & related services, Springfield Public Schools, Springfield, MA Few classroom teachers, parents, administrators, as well as college professors and students, have the appropriate training and understanding to help special education students, despite the rise in numbers during the last decade. The Special Education Toolbox: Supporting Exceptional Teachers, Students and Families is a practical reference guide that provides the most up-to-date information, real-world examples, and resources to guide those who work and live with with our struggling students. -- Elizabeth Jean Ed.D, professor, Van Loan School of Education, Endicott College, Beverly, MA
