Maintaining its widely respected and unique focus on the roles/responsibilities of a variety of professionals (in education, psychology, counseling, and human services), the new edition of Human Exceptionality emphasizes how cross-professional collaboration can enhance the lives of exceptional individuals and their families as it strengthens and supports the work of the professionals themselves.After a detailed six-chapter introduction to the foundations of human exceptionalities, the succeeding twelve chapters focus on the definitions, classifications, prevalence, causation, and characteristics of all the major categories of exceptionality. Each categorical chapter concludes with practical material on the educational, medical, and social services aspects of collaborating professionally for and working with exceptional persons. An excellent resource for teachers-in-training, in-service teachers, and human services professionals, the text's unique, human approach combines up-to-date research, detailed personal stories about exceptional persons, and fresh pedagogical features that help students apply the material in each chapter.
