Interactions gives readers an authoritative look at the essential skills necessary for working effectively with others toward quality education for all students through cooperation and collaboration. Comprehensive and well written, it presents an ideal blend of theory and practical applications and is designed to help those in special education, the related services, and other disciplines work with colleagues, administrators, professionals in agencies outside schools, and parents and families. Following a helpful overview of collaboration in contemporary schools and across society, the authors introduce essential communication skills that form the foundation for successful collaboration; show a focus on problem solving and its common collaborative applications; and look at such critical topics as teaming, the key principles of co-teaching, consulting, coaching, mentoring, and conflict and resistance. Every chapter features numerous opportunities to learn new material and reinforce what’s been learned, including the addition of links within the text that make this edition a highly interactive learning tool. The Enhanced Pearson eText features embedded videos and assessments.
