This text aims to provide both experienced and student teachers with strategies to facilitate the learning of children with disabilities within the context of regular education. Basic information regarding special education laws and policies is outlined. However, this text emphasizes specific academic and social needs that children with disabilities may have, rather than stressing the cause of the disability itself. Teaching methods such as co-operative learning, cognitive learning strategies and multi-age peer teaching are explained.
