"For individuals with Down syndrome, the extent of the effect of intellectual disability depends largely on the degree of provision of appropriate support and intervention. In [this book], editors Rhonda Faragher and Barbara Clarke have brought together a number of expert contributors, whose chapters review recent findings in the field of DS education, highlight promising practices and identify areas for future research... importantly incorporates the voices of individuals with Down syndrome, whose personal narratives add significance to the research mission of the text... Aimed at researchers, teacher educators, higher degree students and policy makers, this book is the first of its kind to provide a compendium of research on educating learners with Down syndrome." - BOOK JACKET
