The most widely-used text on the topic of collaboration, Interactions is a guide for preprofessionals and professionals to help them understand and participate effectively in their interactions with other school professionals and parents. It addresses collaboration as a style, with accompanying knowledge and skills, that guides practices in many education efforts. Interactions provides a cutting-edge look at how teams of school professionals- special educators, general educators and related services professionals-can effectively work together to provide a necessary range of services to students with special needs. As a result, future teachers learn how to collaborate with school professionals and families to help special education students who are more often being placed in general education settings. The new edition features: discussion of collaboration in the context of IDEA 2004; Chapter Opening Vignettes; a new boxed feature entitled "A Basis in Research" that demonstrates the rigorous research underpinning the practical collaborative techniques; an expanded section on Ethics that includes a broader selection of ethical inquiries; Issues of diversity are now discussed in relevant passages throughout the text; the Foundations chapter has been expanded to include material on the evolution of inclusion strategies; the Teams chapter has been revised to demonstrate a more practical and less theoretical approach to teaming.
