This book provides a concise overview of a wide range of disabilities that have an impact on students' learning and development. The main topics examined include intellectual disability, autism, Asperger syndrome, other pervasive developmental disorders, language disorders, physical and health impairments, vision and hearing impairments, and emotional and behavioral disorders. The book describes the main features of each disability, the priority needs of individuals with the disability, and the effective methods for teaching these students. Written by internationally acclaimed researcher and author Peter Westwood, the book provides up-to-date factual information for teachers, teachers in training, and other school personnel, such as guidance officers, school counselors, and classroom assistants.
