Overview

The evil prosthesis of Captain Hook, the comical speech of Porky Pig, and the bumbling antics of Mr. Magoo are all examples of images in our culture which can become the basis of negative attitudes and subliminal prejudice towards persons with disabilities. These attitudes influence and underlie discriminatory acts, resulting in negative treatment and segregation. A teacher's ability to recognize and counter such images may well determine the success of inclusion and mainstreaming programs in our schools and society. Well-researched and well-written, this book offers practical guidance as grounded in solid research to schools that are wrestling with how to mainstream children with disabilities.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Intending to change teachers' and students' negative attitudes, help them develop empathy for persons with disabilities, and support the inclusion in school and society of persons with disabilities, this volume first presents an argument for why such changes should take place. It then discusses issues of language and terminology; presents minority group and medical model paradigms; evaluates early attitudes and their consequences; provides a sensible approach to disabilities; and argues for a set of critical educational practices that can change negative attitudes. Resources listed include curriculum guides and activity books, audio visual resources, juvenile books, networks and cable stations, and state assistive technology programs. Annotation c.
