Along with volume 23 of the same series, this book addresses the most current perspectives and issues related to behavior disorders and it involves leaders in the behaviour disorders field. This book specifically addresses identification, assessment and instruction. This book is organized to allow readers to follow behavioral disorders in a very logical and thoughtful process. Topics addressed include legal issues, assessment, placement prevention, culturally and linguistically diverse students, English Language learners, behaviour modification as well as differentiated instruction. Chapters can be read in order or independently since they have considerable versatility. We feel that this volume of "Advances in Special Education" will be an excellent resource for special education professionals who teach and serve students with behavioral disorders.
