Richard M. Garguilo's Special Education in Contemporary Society: An Introduction to Exceptionality, ISBN 9781412988933, serves as a wonderfully researched tool for teachers of children with exceptionalities. Despite the challenges that these children and their families may face on a daily basis, this book details research and strategies that teachers can utilize when helping these exceptional children reach their highest potential. An up close and personal look into the families and lives of children with special needs provides a firsthand account of difficulties and successes experienced as well as coping skills that these homes have learned. The organization of material within the pages of this text is effectively laid out providing a meaningful and, even, enjoyable read to users. Key features throughout the text utilize practical learning tools for presenting information. Features include 'chapter-opening vignettes,' written mostly by parents of children with special needs and detail the daily encounters they have with their child's disabilities. Another extremely helpful feature is the 'Making Inclusion Work' sections that access the knowledge and expertise of special and general education teachers providing useful and effective practices that they have used firsthand with exceptional education students. Other key features included within this text are 'Suggestions for the Classroom' boxes, study questions, learning activities, as well as a list of professional organizations and associations. Garguilo's Special Education in Contemporary Society: An Introduction to Exceptionality covers a wealth of topics pertaining to the world of exceptional children and education. The four introductory chapters address the foundations of special education and include such topics as policies, practices, and programs, as well as parents and family issues with exceptionality. The remaining 10 chapters delve into the different disabilities experienced by children including learning disabilities, emotional and behavior disorders, autism, speech and language disabilities, and physical and health disabilities. One chapter is even devoted to the needs of the gifted and talented students, who are oftentimes overlooked.
