The third edition of Functional Curriculum for Elementary and Secondary Students with Special Needs outlines a broad conceptual framework of functionality for children and adolescents with disabilities.
 
This book describes how to build a functional curriculum for students—that is, a curriculum with everyday usefulness and value in making the student more competent and independent.
 
This edition also shows teachers how to tie the curriculum from the elementary school to the curricula of middle and secondary schools, and ultimately to tasks common in adult life. to this end, response to intervention is an important concept and a new chapter on RTI is included.
 
Chapters new in this edition:
  • Response to Intervention
  • Social Security, Work Incentives, and Benefits Planning
  • Positive Behavior Support
  • Adult Services
  • Going to Work
 
This material reflects advances in the field and will greatly enhance the teacher’s ability to integrate functional curriculum into transition planning for adulthood.
