Summary

Robert and Denise Sedlak are noted for their work with mentally retarded young people. Teaching the Educable Mentally Retarded combines their training and experience to create an invaluable resource for both the practicing and beginning teacher of mildly retarded students. Practical suggestions, case studies, and real-life anecdotes are interwoven with research findings. The result is an up-to-date, comprehensive guide to handling the expected and unexpected situations teachers confront in the classroom.

The book incorporates current trends in education, featuring sections on the use of instructional aides in the classroom and on the use of computers and other teaching technology in special education classes. The authors' style is clear and easy to follow, and the work is enhanced through the copious use of charts and figures.

Robert A. Sedlak is Professor of Special Education and the Director of the Office of Research and Service for the School of Education and Human Services at the University of Wisconsin-Stout. Denise M. Sedlak is a former special education teacher and the co-author of a series of short studies on management of aggressive behavior with Dr. Patrick J. Schloss and Ms. Donna Filips. She is currently Executive Director of the Dunn County United Way.
