Family-School-Community Partnering (FSCP) is a multidimensional process in which schools, families, and communities work together to ensure the academic, social, and emotional success of students. In this new edition, the authors evaluate advances to a multitiered model of FSCP that further incorporates community alliances. Section I covers legislative, empirical, and theoretical underpinnings and updates. Practical strategies are discussed to develop, deliver, and evaluate a cohesive system of support to improve student outcomes. Chapter addendums detail the specific approaches and associated resources to advance FSCP from infancy through adulthood. In Section II, current researchers and practitioners consider how to enhance collaborative partnerships with military, migrant/refugee, and rural communities and support gender identity and varied developmental abilities. Four culminating case stories are designed to facilitate ideas for intentional integration of FSCP domains into readers’ ongoing practices. School psychologists, counselors, educators, administrators, and social workers will learn how to strategically implement this partnering in all levels of schooling.

For introductory courses in Special Education. The authors of this introductory text have a vision for special education to equip general and special education teachers with the principles, values and teaching practices that support the education of the majority of students with disabilities in general education programs. Beginning with a thorough review of the principles that undergird IDEA and the process of nondiscriminatory evaluation, the authors explore the teaching and collaborative processes necessary for implementing best practices and Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 1997. Using a categorical approach, the authors highlight real students with real disabilities and use their stories as a vehicle for describing the characteristics, causes, and challenges that people with exceptionalities face and that both general and special education teachers must consider when making decisions about how, where, and what to teach.
