New Perspectives in Special Education examines major theoretical positions informing special education. It comprises twelve chapters, a bibliography, and a combined author and subject index. Aiming to help readers engage with and question perspectives they or others may take, the book offers a guide to the main positions held in contemporary special education. The volume is intended for students (and lecturers using the book as a course text) and professionals wishing to consider major underlying perspectives in special education. It has an international remit, as it does not focus on the laws and procedures of any one country. Although the book concerns theory, it also refers to implications for practice.
