Description


Special Women, Special Leaders explores the challenge associated with leadership roles as perceived and practiced by women leaders who have spent their careers and lives involved in special education issues. Each contributor offers a unique perspective on balancing a successful professional life with the demands often made on women in their personal lives. These chapters offer an opportunity to begin critical conversations on the journey women take to become leaders. The uniqueness of this book is its link to the traits and behaviors closely associated with special education and its relationship to successful leadership written by higher education administrators, organizational leaders, and advocates for students with special needs.
