“Inclusion Strategies That Work! Third Edition is a must for educators and parents who are looking for the one reference book on inclusion. Not only does it provide a wealth of information, it directs the reader to a host of other valuable resources and covers important basics which other professional books fail to address, such as 'Cultural Concerns for Special Learners' and 'Teen Culture.'”
"Ms. Karten brings a lifetime of experience and a common sense approach to teaching and working with students with disabilities in inclusive environments. Her book, Inclusion Strategies That Work!, places comprehensive strategies, resources and suggestions that are critical for success into the hands of all educators."
"Through her expertise in professional development, Toby Karten has inspired tens of thousands of teachers around the world through her work. That inspiration is captured in this book! Meeting the needs of all students is crucial in every classroom and this book provides a framework for broadening the knowledge of all teachers to make that happen!"
Perfect for Seniors who will be teaching elementary school children. Gives strategies for those who may need additional support due to a diagnosis of a disability.
I like the book, but given my current courses I was only considering it as a supplement (not core) textbook for a couple of my classes. At this time there is not enough content relevant to a single course to adopt it even as a supplement; however we are going to be doing some course restructuring in the future, and I may adopt this book in the future for a new course we are planning to develop. In the meantime I am recommending that our library add this book to their collection.
