Packed with practical tips, tools, and vignettes, Collaborative Teaming shows your staff how to work together effectively to support students with disabilities in inclusive classrooms. Perfect for independent study, inservice training, or preservice study, this reader-friendly guide will get teachers on board with collaborative teaming and give them fresh ways to improve the academic progress and behavior of all students.
