Embracing Disabilities in the Classroom by Toby J. Karten
Book DescriptionThis book illustrates how teachers, students, families, and community members can foster positive inclusive experiences by differentiating not only instruction, but attitudes too! Content-rich interdisciplinary lessons are accompanied by behavioural, academic, and social interventions that capitalize upon students' strengths. The author demonstrates the impact of literature, self-advocacy, role playing, and strategic interventions that make the most of learners' potential by acknowledging and advocating their assets. The book offers lessons, tables, guidelines and charts to help teachers improve both interactions and reflection related to disabilities in school settings and beyond.
