About this product
- DescriptionThe turver rate for special education teachers is the highest of all education fields. It is a tremendously demanding field, made more difficult by the fact that special education classrooms w are populated by mostly moderate to severely disabled students - emotional and behaviorally challenged, autistic, mentally retarded, deaf and dumb, blind, etc. - making the demands even more prounced. This book will help mentors and schools better develop, prepare, and retain these special education teachers, reducing the high turver rates. It focuses specifically on special education programs, including coverage of IEPs, transition plans, referrals, behaviour planning, assistive and augmented techlogy, teaching assistants, medical issues, high parent involvement, and critical issues of burut and isolation. The approach is very practical, offering vignettes, resources, checklists, and related practitioner-friendly tools and pedagogy.

She has had the opportunity to work with new teachers to help them learn practical ways to solve management and instructional problems. Mary Lou is a participant in Florida's Comprehensive System of Personnel Development (CSPD) regional partnership, housed at Florida Atlantic University. She and Jim Forgan both have presented workshops and information sessions on mentoring and mentor training. Dr. Duffy's other interests in special education include transition services for students and young adults with disabilities from school to work. She teaches courses both on line and in traditional format on transition. Her experience with on line courses has helped her become comfortable in teaching using distance technologies. James W.
