IMPACT, v4 n2-3 Sum 1991-Fall 1991
These two theme issues of "Impact" discuss inclusive education for children with disabilities at the preschool to first grade level and at the kindergarten to grade 12 level respectively. The articles present different ways that families and professionals include children with and without disabilities in educational and child care settings, with the common element in their success coming largely through collaboration among many people and agencies. The articles include: "Early Education: Which Path to Inclusion?" (Mary A. McEvoy and others); "The Struggle, the Reward: Two Families' Experiences with Inclusion" (Debra Carroll and others); "Infants, Toddlers, and the Integrated Community" (Linda Kjerland); "Early Intervention in Day Care Settings" (Mary Beth Bruder); "Integration: A Cooperative Effort" (Betty Kasel); "Social Interaction Training for Young Children with Disabilities" (Richard J. Spicuzza); "Staff Training for Inclusion" (Dennis J. Sykes); "Integration in Early Childhood Education: An Administrator's Perspective" (interview with Jean Rochelle); "Transition to Integrated Kindergarten Programs: Child, Family, and Program Issues" (Lynette K. Chandler); "The Million Dollar Question..." (Terri Vandercook and others); "Toward a Shared Agenda for General and Special Education" (Jennifer York); "America 2000: A Revolution in American Education" (Anne Smith and others); "Step by Step: A System's Evolution toward Inclusion" (Richard Schattman); "The Power of One" (Terri Vandercook); "Plungers, Followers, Joiners, and Wailers: A Lesson from Nature" (Terri Vandercook and others); "Interpersonal Skills for Effective Collaboration" (Jacqueline Thousand and Richard Villa); "Creative Problem-Solving: Not Just for Adults" (Michael F. Giangreco); "The Classroom Is 'Where It's At' for Communication Services" (Cathy Macdonald); "Promoting Social Inclusion beyond the School Community" (Brian Abery); and "All Means All...Even the Yes-But and Whadabout Kids" (Marsha Forest and Jack Pearpoint).
