Where has this scholar been hiding? Shapiro has written a tome on disabilities and the education of teachers and students-the book has sources, resources and is written in a way that engages the reader immediately. a must have for those involved in education! Dr. Shapiro has written an excellent book on an important topic -- how to successfully promote positive attitudes toward students with disabilities. Unless teachers and parents plan for the social as well as the physical and academic integration of students with disabilities, the concept of inclusion in regular education classes will not work. Students with disabilities will be rejected, teased, and ignored. "Everybody Belongs" is a sensitively written, practical book for making inclusion work. Shapiro's ideas are based on years of experience and a detailed, insightful understanding of the relevant research and the history of disabilities. It is also based on a keen understanding of schools, teachers, and children.
