Volumes 19 and 20 address the top issues and trends in special education by providing chapters written by active researchers and practitioners in their respective areas. Volume 19 first delineates traditional topics such as identification, assessment, and labeling by reviewing historical aspects and then discussing current concerns. Then this volume addresses newer innovations and issues related to placement and inclusion, scientifically supported and unsupported interventions, instructional methods such as response to intervention and positive behavioral supports, and programming students with challenging conditions such as attention deficit hyperactivity and autism spectrum disorders. Volume 20 addresses issues that impact all teachers, such as preparation of teachers; multicultural considerations for instruction; the use of assistive technology with special needs students; transition planning, preparation and implementation; language, communication, and education; and quantitative and qualitative research endeavors.
