This 55 page book is the all time best seller of Inclusion Press. It is now in its 4th printing. It is short and jargon free. It describes the Circle of Friends exercise, and the MAPS (Making Action Plans) process in detail. We strongly recommend it as a companion to the videos: With A Little Help From My Friends and the New MAPS Training Video. This book is being used by school systems around the globe. It is perfect for conferences and courses. It is short and filled with actual tips on how to develop an action plan (MAP) for including any child at risk of exclusion. It is not limited to any one label, but applies to children at risk at any age. Although it focuses on elementary and middle school children, the process is transferable to high school students and adults. A perfect handout for large conferences or a text for courses.

Over 20,000 copies distributed - "A down to earth blueprint of what 21st century education should be doing for all kids in regular classrooms. Modest but powerful strategies for making it happen in a jargon -free, step-by-step book."

Mostly school personnel and parents of children in school.
