Special Education

Since our beginnings in the 1970s, Brookes has led the way as the publisher of authoritative, progressive voices in the field of inclusive education.

Our research-based resources and curricula help the full range of education professionals—including teachers, principals, SLPs, paraprofessionals, and school psychologists—address the individual needs of every learner in Grades K-12. We partner with pioneers and fresh voices to bring you ready-to-use, evidence-based strategies that help students achieve academic success and work toward a bright future.

Inclusive practices

We bring you new titles on the most critical topics in inclusive education, so you’re fully prepared to welcome and support every learner. With our resources at your fingertips, you’ll empower all students to increase their learning and achievement, make friends, and pursue their dreams and goals.

Universal design for learning (UDL)

UDL is one of today’s hottest topics in education. It’s easy to see why: who wouldn’t want to create a universally designed learning environment that welcomes all students and helps everyone succeed? But fully embracing UDL takes planning and coordinated effort—so that’s why we publish books and resources from UDL experts to help you on the journey.

Social-emotional learning

Strong social-emotional competence is the foundation of academic and social success. We publish timely, practical guidebooks and curricula that help you reduce bullying, promote social acceptance, support students as they deal with challenging emotions, and make social-emotional learning fun and engaging for all learners.


Special education learning disabilities are something we’ll all encounter. According to CDC estimates, about 1 in 68 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). We bring you the tools and knowledge you need to support students on the autism spectrum and help them pursue their goals and dreams. Partnering with trailblazing authorities on autism, we publish books and curricula filled with innovative strategies and up-to-date research on supporting better academic and social outcomes for learners with ASD.


How can you reduce behavior challenges—and stop them before they start? It’s a question on every teacher’s mind, and our expert authors have the answers you need. We publish problem-solving guidebooks that help you address even the toughest behavior challenges and create a safe, positive learning environment for each student in your class.

Reading and literacy

From cutting-edge reading textbooks to practical teacher guides, our resources prepare current and future reading teachers to meet the needs of students with and without disabilities. Discover how to teach the big ideas of reading, plan lessons, modify your special education curriculum and materials, use assistive technology, assess students’ progress, and more.
