A boy travels to an alternate world where kids get to choose their own parents in this zany, internationally bestselling adventure, which combines the be-careful-what-you-wish-for humor of The Chocolate Touch with the classic appeal of Roald Dahl. Barry Bennett is sick of his parents. They’re boring, they’re too strict, and it’s their fault his name is Barry. So he makes a wish for better ones—and is whisked away to the Parent Agency, where kids get to pick out their perfect parents. For Barry, this seems like a dream come true. But as he’s about to discover, choosing a new mom and dad isn’t as simple as it sounds… The Parent Agency is the first children’s book by British author and comedian David Baddiel, and it includes illustrations by Roald Dahl Funny Prize–winning artist Jim Field.

Three hilarious novels of heart, humour and wishes gone wrong, from the new star of childrenâe(tm)s books - by award-winning and bestselling author, David Baddiel. Illustrated by Jim Field - winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. THE PARENT AGENCY: Barry said, a third time, âeoeI wish I had better parents!âe And then suddenly the entire room started to shakeâe¦ Barry Bennett hates being called Barry. In fact itâe(tm)s number 2 on the list of things he blames his parents for, along with 1) âe~being boringâe(tm) and 3) âe~always being tiredâe(tm). But there is a world, not far from this one, where parents donâe(tm)t have children. Thatâe(tm)s far too random for something so big and important. In this world, children are allowed to choose their parents. For Barry Bennett, this world seems like a dream come true. Only things turn out to be not quite that simpleâe¦ THE PERSON CONTROLLER: Fred and Ellie are twins. But not identical (because that's impossible for a boy and a girl). They do like all the same things, though. Especially video games. Which they are very good at. They aren't that good, however, at much else âe" like, for example, football, or dealing with the school bullies. Then, they meet the Mystery Man, who sends them a video game controller, which doesn't look like any other controller they've ever seen. And it doesn't control any of their usual games. When the twins find out what it does control, though, it seems like the answer to all their problems. And the key to all their wildest dreams. At least it seems like thatâe¦ ANIMALCOLM: Malcolm doesnâe(tm)t like animals. Which is a problem because his family love them. Their house is full of pets. What the house is NOT full of is stuff Malcolm likes. Such as the laptop he wanted for his birthday. The only bright spot on the horizon is the Year 6 school trip, until Malcolm realizes itâe(tm)s heading toâe¦oh no. The farm. Over the next days, Malcolm changes. He learns a lot about animals. More, in many ways, than he would like. He learns what itâe(tm)s really like to be an animalâe¦ It does make him think differently. And speak differently. And eat differently. But will he end up the same as he was before? Because sometimes the hardest thing to become isâe¦ yourself.

To any professional concerned with exceptional children, it would be the greatest understatement to say that the courts and legislatures have had a tremendous impact on the field of speeial education. Especially in the last decade, a flood of litigation filed to develop and define the right to education of previously unserved handicapped children has left no special education teacher, school adminis trator, nurse, educational psychologist, or pediatrician unaffected-either be cause these professionals are daily called upon to help children, or because they may come forward as witnesses on behalf of children who are the subjects of special education meetings, individualized education programs, placement hear ings, or judicial proceedings. Thus, for these people, questions regarding a student's legal rights are immediate and pervasive. This book developed out of the need to provide nonlegal professionals with a lawyer's view of the huge body of court cases and federal laws and regulations that affect their practice as well as their students and clients. An introductory chapter provides the historical basis of the current interface between law and special education. The Education for All Handicapped Children Act of 1975 and Sec tion 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and their regulations promulgated in 1977, are the major national laws in the field ~nd are therefore described in Chapters 2 and 3.

This book focuses on community self-help and support groups specifically in the context of recovery movements in addiction and mental health care. The idea of groups of recovering people meeting together may seem like a simple one and not one requiring much effort and thought; however, as this book will show, this is not the case. In Recovery Groups: A Guide to Creating, Leading, and Working with Groups for Addictions and Mental Health Conditions Linda Kurtz breaks down the recovery movement for addictions and mental health care into three sections. In the first section recovery concepts are broken down into two fields: how they differ and how they come together. The second section focuses on methods of working with independent self-help groups and leadership in support groups. Kurtz touches on the study of helping mechanisms, social climate, group teachings, group structure, and how to use each of these to improve group performance. In the third section of the book, Kurtz examines social and community actions from members involved in Twelve-Step fellowships and consumer survivor organizations. The final section also details programs that provide employment, housing, and mutual support, explaining how to accomplish these goals without a large expense. This book will be useful to students, professional mental health and addiction workers, recovery coaches and peer support specialists, and group members and leaders who are interested in this topic.

This book focuses on the pioneer of such intervention, California's widely acclaimed Community Treatment Project (CTP). During its 12-year operation CTP essentially instituted and legitimized community-based programming as a viable option for both national and international corrections. It also developed and field-tested many of the strategies and techniques for working with serious delinquents that are now common such as staff/youth matching and group homes. As did CTP itself, the book draws from an underlying, developmental view of adolescence and its challenges. In reflecting such a perspective, and in light of society's fundamental need for long-term protection, the book presents an ethical/pragmatic rationale for setting goals that highlight personal-emotional growth and new types or levels of social skills. In remaining centered on the goal of long-term public protection, the individualized intervention can both accomodate and guide the recent interest in restorative justice.
