Great book April 26, 2011

Many textbooks are written as 'us' and 'them', but Kluth is able to overcome the misconceptions and misunderstandings of the abilities of children with differences. If you are a teacher - rent this cheap textbook, and read it! If you are a parent - buy this book, and read it and then give it to your child's teacher?
