Written in a reader-friendly style with tons of examples and suggestions for teachers of inclusion classrooms, Teacher's Survival Guide: The Inclusion Classroom addresses the most important issues new teachers face when working with students with disabilities. The book includes reproducible pages, tip sheets, and checklists, along with a detailed resource list-all of which teachers can use immediately to transform the inclusion classroom into a successful learning environment.

Topics covered include professional expectations, collaborating with other teachers and therapists, establishing parent relationships that enhance communication, understanding legal issues affecting students with disabilities, creating an effective learning environment that meets all students' needs, managing the classroom, using technology wisely, assessing student progress, and planning successful academic instruction. Intended as a guide for new inclusion teachers or those who need a refresher course on working with mixed-ability learners, this book will be a resource teachers will rely on again and again.
