The Educator′s Diagnostic Manual of Disabilities and Disorders

"This work offers educators a manual that finally puts them on a level professional playing field with members of other disciplines such as psychiatry, psychology, and other diagnostic–related professions. Long have educators needed such a manual, which allows their views and clinical insights to be offered in a forum that can be recognized uniformly and with parallel integrity to other professions. I believe this manual will become the standard used to clarify the complicated nature of IDEA and other diagnostic and educational ruling conflicts among professionals of different disciplines."
Mark H. Yeager, Ph.D., FAAIDD,Board of Directors, American Association onIntellectual and Developmental Disabilities

The information is detailed and presented in a user–friendly format. Each disability s impact on a student s education is clearly presented, and the segments that detail how to address each exceptionality in a student s Individualized Education Program (IEP) provide an excellent ′how to′ approach when planning to address the student s documented educational needs. The EDM s coding system provides a consistent manner to document each disability category, which offers clarity for the reader when creating and/or reading an IEP."––John B. W.
