The Inclusion Papers: Strategies To Make Inclusion Work. A Collection of Articles.
Pearpoint, Jack; And Others
This collection of over 30 papers presents the view that all persons should be equally valued, provided equal opportunities, viewed as unique individuals, and be exposed to and learn from and about people with diverse characteristics. The papers offer insight into the process of moving forward to achieve both equity and excellence for all Canadian people, labeled "disabled" or not, in educational and other community settings. The articles call for advocacy, attitude change, and expanded availability of appropriate supports and services within schools and communities to allow everyone to participate and contribute in a meaningful way. Titles of sample papers include: "Two Roads: Inclusion or Exclusion"; "The 'Butwhatabout' Kids"; "Annie's Gift"; "Common Sense Tools: MAPS and CIRCLES"; "MAPS: Action Planning"; "Dreaming, Speaking and Creating"; "Kick 'em Out or Keep 'em In"; "Vive la Difference"; and "Natural Support Systems."
