Instruction of Students with Severe Disabilities presents a balance of theory and practice for understanding the full range of curriculum and instructional topics involved in educating individuals with severe intellectual disabilities and autism. Case studies focus on students of various ages and with a variety of disabilities. Evidence-based practices are presented clearly to ensure that you understand how to apply them in your own classroom.

The 9th Edition has been updated with new evidence-based research. A new chapter on inclusive education describes evidence-based practices for supporting inclusive education at the school and classroom levels. And a new chapter on transition covers students' transition from school to post-secondary education as well as from school to employment.
