If you are planning to do a final project (Master's degree) in special education, you will need to identify seminal authors and articles on your topic (these are essential to the topic, regardless of date written).  The bibliographies listed below are a good place to go to identify some of those authors.  Except where noted, they are all written from an educational perspective.

You might also find references to seminal resources in some of the reference sources under the next tab.
