Hallahan, D. P., Kauffman, J. M., & Pullen, P. C. (2019). Exceptional learners: An introduction to special education. Pearson.
"Exceptional Learners: An Introduction to Special Education focuses on exceptional learners and classroom practices, as well as the psychological, sociological, and medical aspects of disabilities and giftedness.
"Based on the authors’ premise that professionals working with exceptional learners need to develop not only a solid base of knowledge, but also a healthy attitude toward their work and the people whom they serve, this book is designed to reach the heart as well as the mind. It asks both general and special educators to challenge themselves to acquire a solid understanding of current theory, research, and practice in special education, and to develop an ever more sensitive understanding of exceptional learners and their families." -publisher

But if you have a special ed child, you know that your family must make sure the school follows through... The 10th edition includes summaries of important court decisions, expanded information on independent evaluations and bullying, and additional real-life tips. It provides key forms, sample letters, and resources you need at every stage of the IEP process. With it, you can make sure your child gets a good education―the education he or she deserves." -publisher
