Series: Advances in Special Education

This series is directed to professors and graduate students in special education, educational psychology, developmental and clinical psychology. Contributing authors discuss basic theoretical positions and empirical findings in their own professional disciplines, which provide the foundation for research and clinical/educational applications to exceptional children and adults. Included are chapters covering aspects of cognition, perception, language, memory, attention, motivation and socialization, as well as chapters dealing with behaviorist, psychodynamic, Piagetian, and cross-cultural approaches to understanding a typical development. Taken as a whole, this series identifies the important substantive constructs and concepts which provide the underpinnings for applied practice and research in special education and related fields.
