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.

Industry Reviews

..."researched like and referenced like a text book, but written in lay terms to hold the interest of both parents and professionals.." -Exceptional Parent, May 2001 ..."well grounded and well researched...a remarkably thorough treatment of a timely and significant topic. Highly recommended for upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and practitioners." -Choice "Best practice is accomplished when values drive perspectives and attitudes. The book from cover to cover emphasizes the value, to "confront bigotry in all its ism forms." Everyone who reads the book will realize that, whatever differences may appear, the differences are not in kind, but only in degree, This realization is enough for the book to have achieved its goal.." -Sheila Saravanabhavan, Virginia State University Disability Studies Quarterly, Winter 2001
