The Educator’s Diagnostic Manual of Disabilities and Disorders

by Roger Pierangelo & George Giuliani

Item: 9780787978129

Format: softcover
Pages: 576

The definitive resource for special educators, school psychologists, and child group study teams.

This comprehensive guide provides all the information needed — including definitions, symptoms, characteristics, and types — for the most significant educational disabilities and disorders, presented in a user-friendly format. Using the reauthorised IDEA 2004 Act as a frame of reference, this book is ideal for coding and mapping to IEPs — the individualised education plans that are key to special education funding. The very first manual created specifically for education professionals, this book addresses a range of disorders and relates their significance to classroom practice, including:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Developmental Delays
  • Mental Retardation
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • and many others

The Educator’s Diagnostic Manual of Disabilities and Disorders (EDM) provides an excellent ‘snapshot’ of each of the disability categories, benefiting special education novices and experts alike. The information is detailed and presented in a user-friendly format. Each disability’s impact on a student’s education is clearly presented, and the segments that detail how to address each exceptionality in a student’s Individualised Education Program (IEP) provide an excellent ‘how to’ approach when planning to address the student’s documented educational needs. The EDM’s coding system provides a consistent manner to document each disability category, which offers clarity for the reader when creating and/or reading an IEP.”
