My Website Wednesday feature this week is autism-specific to keep within our theme of autism awareness and advocacy. Since I am pulling ideas out of “You’re Going to Love This Kid” for this week, the featured website is Brookes Publishing. There are many great resources on their newly-expanded site, so if you have not been over there recently, you will want to visit.
This still is also from the “You’re Going to Love This Kid” movie and is a snapshot of Kendra Larmour, a middle school science teacher, co-teaching with one of her students with disabilities. Kendra regularly collaborates with kids and finds opportunities for impromptu co-teaching moments in her lessons.
Some of you know Lisa Jo Rudy from her column on About.com but she not just a writer but also an educator, advocate, and mom. In her new book on having fun in the community, Lisa Jo encourages families, educators, and community members to think about inclusion beyond school walls. Recently, I had a chance to conduct a little interview with her for this blog:
There are so many great things to report from the Autism Institute Summer Conference in San Diego. First of all, I got to see many talented colleagues present including Anne Donnellan, Martha Leary, Christi Kasa and Ari Ne’Eman. I also got to try my hand at improv in one of the breakout sessions (TONS of fun).
