  •     Great book and my copy was in great condition. It had a lot of valuable information about students with disabilities, their families, ways to help transition, and resources. This information is important for all teachers to know, not just Special Educators, and I highly recommend it!
  •     To be honest, this is probably one of the best textbooks I've ever used. It's a great resource that tells you about various disabilities and methods of educating those with disabilities. It's also very clear about the laws that are currently in place for those with disabilities and gives you clear definitions of everything.I especially like the sections where it talks about real children and their disabilities and the various ways teams have worked together to develop education plans for the children.This is definitely a great resource if your a teacher, studying to be a teacher, or even if you just want to know more about those with disabilities.
  •     I had to have this book for college class and it was very interesting to read and learn from. If you work in the educational system it is a great book to educate yourself more about special needs children. I was happy Amazon had it in a rental and it came in very good condition.
  •     I bought this book because I needed it for a class, but found it quite interesting and helpful in learning more about a wide variety of exceptional learners. I did not need the online access for my class, but did not know that until after I had already bought the version with it. Since I did not use the access code I sold this textbook back to Amazon and did not keep it as a reference book. In the future though I will look for a more affordable used copy that I can hold onto.
  •     The book was in great condition, and it has been really helpful in my studies as a future teacher.
  •     The book got here really fast and there were little to no marking!
  •     The description was accurate and came when we expected.
  •     Not what I thought it would be
  •     The text is awesome at delivering informationa nd making it easy to find. Everything is clear and thoroughly explained.
  •     The book was in very poor condition, but the information is relevant and helpful to me as a teacher.
  •     The condition of the book I rented was described as "good". I would have chosen "excellent" as the rating for the condition of the book. It is clean, undamaged, and no marks have been made on the pages.The book itself, at first, was extremely overwhelming to me with all the facts that teachers face not only in general education, but in special education. After almost a month and three chapters read to date, I am now seeing things come together. We also have an excellent teacher to explain all the ins and outs of special education.In short, I find the book to be packed full of new information, to me, which has really opened my eyes to the special needs and relationships in this field. I look forward to reading the rest of the book and exspanding my knowledge of this area further.My admiration for teachers was already very high, but it has now jumped even further up the scale.Thank you for your attention.Roxanne Fuldner
  •     It's great. Would buy from these people again.
  •     Exactly how it's advertised
  •     The book was fine, and in perfect condition, I easily found binder for the loose pages that were nicely tightly wrapped. There could be other advantages to having the pages loose especially during open book quizes. The glossary or dictionary could be pulled out and available without flipping. The ease in which something might be pulled out and copied. It did take a long time to get here, so long that I thought I would have to order from another company and did, just to cancel that order in less than 24 hours because of its 11th hour arrival. If it had arrived sooner, I would give it 5 stars.
  •     For those of us who are new to teaching in general or to special education specifically, it provides a nice overview of the issues, the legal requirements (in the U.S., anyway), the ways to spot an exceptional learner, and approaches to take when teaching. Some of this may not be useful for non-U.S. teachers. I appreciated that this edition exists, nonetheless, as it covers the same material as the other editions whilst being markedly more affordable.
  •     The book offers a lot of great insight into the world of special education processes, but anyone who is require to take an educational psychology course will probably find it a BIT redundant. Of course there are many more sensitive issues at stake in Hallahan's book than in most Ed. Psych books but the authors tend to use outdated terminology that is common in secondary teaching practices such as "tiered assignments" which is commonly and most universally known as "scaffolding." Great work on the IEP process and maintenance issue though and definitely a must in any teacher's personal library.
  •     The pages of my book were bound to each other, but not to the book's cover.
  •     It's just a textbook
