Autism, Therapy and Fun; OT to the Rescue is a collection of engaging activities that are versatile enough for use with individuals or groups of mixed ages and abilities. It is intended for children with adaptive functioning levels in the two- to five-year-old range. The activities were developed to enhance skills that often challenge children with autism and other special needs including fine motor, visual processing, body awareness/motor planning, sensory processing, self-help, and cognitive skills. Children aged 2 through 17 years with autism, ADHD, sensory processing disorders, feeding concerns, Down syndrome, and speech-language delay have successfully participated in these activities. Each activity in Autism, Therapy and Fun; OT to the Rescue includes a Leader Guide, Parent Information Handout, and supplemental materials, when appropriate. The Leader Guide provides a list of materials needed, detailed instructions, and helpful hints. The Parent Information Handout explains the rationale, process, and skills emphasized, helping parents be informed members of the team. Supplemental materials such as templates, diagrams, and pictures are also included. “It is a child’s ‘job’ or ‘occupation’ to play in order to develop physical coordination, emotional maturity, social skills to interact with other children, and self-confidence to try new experiences and explore new environments” (www.aota.org, 10/4/2009). As pediatric occupational therapists (OT), we use this definition of occupation provided by the American Occupational Therapy Association to guide our practice. OTs infuse play with the opportunity to develop these skills, despite special needs or skill deficits. Children with autism often face overwhelming occupational challenges. “Autism is a developmental disability that affects how the brain functions, and often impairs social skills development and communication.

 Creating an Inclusive School, 2nd Edition


Creating an Inclusive School, 2nd Edition


$26.95


In this comprehensive resource on inclusive schooling, administrators, general and special educators, and parents explore how inclusive education can support a diverse student body at all grade levels. They show how schools can meet standards and provide a “least restrictive environment” for students with disabilities by using cooperative learning, teaming, multi-age grouping, multicultural education, social skills training, and educational technology applications. And they explain how to facilitate change by using universal design principles and other curricular, instructional, assessment, and organizational practices. The authors examine the prevailing myths and the most frequently asked questions about inclusive education, and they provide an extensive list of resources. Woven through the book are the personal stories of people with disabilities and the educators and parents who work with them. As their voices make clear, inclusion is more than an educational buzzword; inclusion is a way of life, based on the belief that each individual is valued and belongs. Richard A. Villa, Ed.D., has worked with thousands of teachers and administrators to develop and implement instructional support systems for educating all students within general education settings. Jacqueline S. Thousand, Ph.D., is a professor in the College of Education at California State University, San Marcos, where she coordinates the College’s special education credential and masters programs.

 E. Franklin Frazier and Black Bourgeoisie


E. Franklin Frazier and Black Bourgeoisie


$24.95


When E. Franklin Frazier was elected the first black president of the American Sociological Association in 1948, he was established as the leading American scholar on the black family and was also recognized as a leading theorist on the dynamics of social change and race relations. By 1948 his lengthy list of publications included over fifty articles and four major books, including the acclaimed Negro Family in the United States. Frazier was known for his thorough scholarship and his mastery of skills in both history and sociology.With the publication of Bourgeoisie Noire in 1955 (translated in 1957 as Black Bourgeoisie), Frazier apparently set out on a different track, one in which he employed his skills in a critical analysis of the black middle class. The book met with mixed reviews and harsh criticism from the black middle and professional class. Yet Frazier stood solidly by his argument that the black middle class was marked by conspicuous consumption, wish fulfillment, and a world of make-believe. While Frazier published four additional books after 1948, Black Bourgeoisie remained by far his most controversial.Given his status in American sociology, there has been surprisingly little study of Frazier’s work. In E. Franklin Frazier and Black Bourgeoisie, a group of distinguished scholars remedies that lack, focusing on his often-scorned Black Bourgeoisie.This in-depth look at Frazier’s controversial publication is relevant to the growing concerns about racism, problems in our cities, the limitations of affirmative action, and the promise of self-help.
