  2. RTI in Secondary Schools

    Perhaps more than any other single initiative, response to intervention (RTI) is likely to restructure secondary schools in a profound and fundamental way. While the impact of RTI alone will be significant, when coupled with differentiated lessons for all Tier 1 instruction and supported by up-to-date instructional technologies, that impact is likely to drastically refocus instruction. RTI in Secondary Schools explores actual implementation experiences to help readers identify concerns, and it suggests solutions for the complex challenges that will need to be addressed during the RTI implementation process.

    Teaching in Tandem: Effective Co-Teaching in the Inclusive Classroom

    Co-teaching is an equal partnership between a special education teacher and a general education teacher. They share a classroom and responsibilities for teaching all students in the class. But what does co-teaching look like? How does it work? Are we doing it right?

  5. Removing the Mask

    In Removing the Mask Paul D. Slocumb, Ed.D. and Ruby K. Payne, Ph.D. present an identification model that is based on a new paradigm. They maintain that environmental factors often mask giftedness in students from poverty, making their gifted attributes unrecognisable in schools that operate using the hidden rules of middle class. Removing the Mask is a highly instructive book for the practicing professional who is committed to finding and serving the best and brightest students from the culture of poverty. It also offers suggestions on how to help gifted/talented students from poverty be successful and remain in gifted/talented programs once the students have been identified.

  6. Autism and Understanding

    The author sets out an approach based on Dr Geoffrey Waldon’s philosophy of the development of understanding, which centres on helping children learn-how-to-learn. This book does not offer a ‘miracle cure’ for autism, although the author aims to counteract the prevailing view that autism is a lifetime condition. The author demonstrates that with the appropriate intervention, children with autism - and other special needs - can gain a fuller understanding of the world and learn to take a constructive and contributing place in it. Teachers, therapists, doctors, parents and special interest groups will find this book an important and potentially transformational read.

    A new concept on human diversity has emerged over the past 10 years that promises to revolutionise the way educators provide services to students with specials needs: neurodiversity. Just as we celebrate diversity in nature and cultures, so too do we need to honour the diversity of brains among our students who learn, think and behave differently. This innovative book focuses on five categories of specials needs: learning disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism, intellectual disabilities, and emotional and behavioural disorders.
