Overview

A practical handbook designed to help special education administrators, principals, and assistant principals address many of the issues they will confront relating to students with disabilities.

This unique book is developed specifically to help new administrators survive the pressure of working with students with disabilities. Many texts are filled with theories, but very little practical advice has been available specifically about day-to-day operations. This book is organized to give new special education administrators that practical advice. Current administrators with extensive knowledge of special education share their experiences through contributed chapters. The practical, real world advice will prove useful not only for special education administrators, but also for principals and assistant principals.

Features:
• Realistic examples developed to promote problem solving abilities are included in every chapter.
• Includes the latest information on the role of administrators.
• The practical importance of the content is quickly stated, without over-emphasizing theory.
