This book is a collection of photographs and accompanying text that focuses on the inclusion of high school students with disabilities in general education classrooms in New Hampshire. For each topic, a black-and-white picture is presented of a student with a disability in a general education setting. The opposing page has a paragraph on what people used to think about students with disabilities, paired with a paragraph on what people now know about students with disabilities. Topics include: academics, curriculum, natural supports, life skills, community, friendship, work, graduation, restructuring, future planning, and respect. The text stresses the need to change society's beliefs about the limitations and segregation of high school students with disabilities and to make the accommodations necessary to include these students in general education.
