Collective Wisdom: An Anthology of Stories and Best Practices for Educating Students with Severe Disabilities and Deaf-Blindness.
Kansas State Dept. of Education, Topeka.
This anthology was written by a group of Kansas educators and others with knowledge about the special needs of children with severe disabilities and deaf/blindness. The book was created to describe effective educational practices for these students identified by research and to serve as a resource for teachers and parents. The anthology is divided into eight topical sections, each of which includes a personal story or vignette and a summary of best practices related to the topic. The eight sections address the following best practice areas: (1) belonging; (2) self-determined lives: values, planning, and transition; (3) collaborative teaming and systems change, working together for change; (4) teaching and learning; (5) life activities, adaptations, and supports; (6) communication; (7) positive behavioral supports; and (8) sensory experience.
