Alternative American Schools: Ideals in Action is a book for parents and teachers, for education professors, researchers, and students--indeed, for everyone who wants to understand the daily practices and philosophies of schools where awakening interests and learning how to learn is more important than content mastery. Drawing upon years of research and personal experiences, Korn clearly discusses fundamental contemporary educational issues through an analysis of seven long-lived, open, alternative schools, preschool through high school, public and private. This clearly written book explores the cooperative (and sometimes confusing) roles of teachers, students, and parents in these schools of choice; it also discusses their philosophical, financial, and physical survival needs. Once popularly dismissed as failed dreams, today these open learning environments continue to flourish and provide educational options to many enthusiastic learners.

John DeCoste, the main character of Alone And On My Knees, weaves you through an incredible and adventurous pattern of personal life situations. First, he takes you through the stormy years of childhood and the years of young adulthood in his beloved village of Arichat, Cape Breton. Secondly, he takes you through the years as a student at Teacher Training College and his first experiences as a teacher in Nova Scotia; then, you journey with him through the years of seminary training in the United States and England. Finally, he shares his experience with you as a missionary priest in Africa, in particular in the countries of Burkina Faso (the former Upper Volta), Nigeria and Central Africa (Zaire, present day Congo, Rwanda, Burundi). Both at home and abroad he faced many challenges and life decisions. This is the story of such an odyssey. His experience of the Rwandan genocide and war touched his life deeply. It is an amazing story of growth in relationships, in love, hope, trust and faith and the great need for a strong and deep loving presence in ones life.

Children with neurodevelopmental disabilities such as mental retardation or autism present multiple challenges to their families, health care providers, and teachers. Professionals consulted by desperate parents often see the problems from their own angle only and diagnosis and intervention efforts wind up fragmented and ineffective. This book presents a model multidisciplinary approach to care--family-centered and collaborative--that has proven effective in practice. A pillar of the approach is recognition of the importance of performing culturally competent assessment and adjusting service delivery so that is responsive to cultural differences. Detailed case stories illuminate the ways in which the approach can help children with different backgrounds and different disabilities. Most chapters include study questions, lists of resources, and glossaries to facilitate easy comprehension by professionals with different backgrounds--in special education, communication sciences, and disorders, clinical and counseling psychology, neuropsychology and psychiatry, social work, pediatrics--and program administrators as well as students, trainees and educated parents. Caring for Children With Neurodevelopmental Disabilities and Their Families constitutes a crucial new resource for all those professionally and personally concerned with these children.
