    As books intended to be textbooks go, this book by Westling and Fox covers the material without subjecting the reader to terminology which it does not explain.It is broken up into well organized chapters, and reads well (meaning even a working professional can cover a chapter at a time without the book making them tired). It is not written in technical venacular, but in common sense terms most people interested in the subject can understand.Unlike other books written in the field of special education it does not presume experience working with the children in question nor insult your intelligence if you are.Most students should read this book before attempting any real fieldwork in the area of students with severe disabilities ( instead of as a textbook for a final class before student teaching as was my situation). It will give you a clearer view of the types of students you will be working with, and some of the ways to deal with them.

    Teaching Students with Severe Disabilities is almost the best introduction a student can have to this field of education.Drs Westling and Fox outline in each chapter another area you will encounter in educating students with severe disabilities.Unlike some textbooks this book is not overly weighted with jargon,or written to a level that requires expert knowledge of the field to decipher it.Yet it can stand by itself as an introduction to your student population.Until you actually student teach, such as I have, this will be your best source for understanding your students and their needs.

    I don’t think that anyone will buy this book unless they have to. It has good up-to-date info on special education and how to do great things for these students, but I don’t think many of the authors have worked in a real school in the last couple of years.

    The textbook I ordered arrived promptly and in good condition at a much cheaper price than the campus bookstore.

    Seems disjointed. The writing lacks organization. I usually keep my text books but

    I sold this one back after my class.
