This easy-to-use guidebook throws them a lifeline, offering strategies for teaching children with special needs, tailoring activities to individual needs, and working on a child's IEP goals.

To help them use this model, this guide gives teachers detailed chapters for each building block, including instructions on when to use each method, everyday examples of each, and practical suggestions for implementation pages of photocopiable curriculum modifications with space for teacher-generated ideas a chart of classroom challenges linked back to curriculum modifications four stories of successful interventions, featuring children from diverse backgrounds and their teachers suggestions for using the model to address crucial curriculum content areas.
