Large Scale Testing of Students With Disabilities addresses three issues: accommodations, modifications, and reporting of outcomes. The purpose is not to present an exhaustive summary of the research in these areas but to focus attention on how the issues are considered and empirically validated. The research summarized in this issue should serve as a model for state departments to consider in adoption of policy, either as findings upon which to inform policy or as a method to adopt in generating findings themselves. The studies reflect critical methodologies that are either experimental in design or use extant data sets as well as present a theoretical framework in how to interpret empirical results.

This special issue examines four critical aspects of writing instruction for students with disabilities: prevention, classroom practice, instruction, and assessment. The first article addresses writing strategy instruction for young students at risk for long-term writing difficulties. Next special and general education middle school educators' epistemology is explored regarding writing development and instruction, their self-reported teaching practices, and the challenges they faced as they strive to teach middle school students how to effectively use writing as a communicative medium and learning tool. The third, article reviews and critiques state writing standards and describes an instructional plan to help students with disabilities and other struggling writers master composing strategies and processes that may equip them to meet state standards in writing. Finally, a review is presented of the extant research on various methods of writing assessment, including holistic, primary trait, and analytic scoring methods, with particular emphasis on Curriculum-Based Measurement--an assessment technique well suited for children and youth in special education.

This special issue, Part II in a series devoted to the topic of strategic instruction, explores the issue of traversing the research to practice abyss through the implementation of authentic and effective business development. It reminds us that "business as usual" approaches to teacher in-service programs are unlikely to produce meaningful changes in teachers' classroom practices. In addition, this issue offers strategic instructional approaches to facilitate students' learning and focuses on structuring instruction to promote self-regulated learning. Each article raises important questions about existing practices and offers innovative alternatives to improve outcomes for students and teachers.

Using a risk and resilience orientation, Intervention with Children and Adolescents distills evidence-based studies into practice guidelines for designing and implementing interventions across a wide range of social and health problems in childhood and adolescence. Leading scholars from nearly two dozen fields of practice share their wisdom as they critically review literatures in child maltreatment, youth violence, drug abuse, school dropout, pregnancy, serious mental disorders, gang involvement, and other areas of practice. This book is distinguished by detailed interdisciplinary perspective reviews on the impact of culture, gender, sexual orientation, and poverty on child development and developmental pyschopathology. This is a path-finding book for practitioners, students, parents, and scholars. It is compelling reading on how we can change systems and services to make positive changes in child outcomes. Intervention is grounded in the latest data on prevalence, theories, empirical evidence on intervention, factors/conditions that protect and/or increase risk for negative outcomes, and social/cultural factors unique to various racial and ethnic groups. Case illustrations, additional reading lists, charts/tables on various interventions, and practice guidelines set this book apart from other literature in this area.

Human Exceptionality provides a uniquely multidisciplinary and lifespan approach to the study of exceptional individuals. The first half of Human Exceptionality examines the foundations of exceptionality from a multidisciplinary perspective and lifespan approach. The second half focuses on definitions, classifications, prevalence, causation, and characteristics for the major categories of exceptionality. Discussion of each disability area concludes with practical educational, medical, and social services aspects of working with people who are exceptional. Up-to-date research informs discussions that are intelligent, interesting, and humanistic. By taking a human services approach, this book is appropriate for teachers in training, as well as those who are planning to work with persons with disabilities in other human services contexts, such as psychology, social work, allied health and counseling.
