With a Little Help from My Friends

Produced by Marsha Forest and George Flynn



Also available in

Award winning!! This one hour video describes the basics of creating schools where all kids belong and learn together. In three parts, listen to Grade 7 and 8 students describe the impact of inclusion on their school and their lives. Observe teachers doing the same. Then see hands on strategies at work including MAPS and Circles of Friends. This classic video keeps selling as if it were brand new. The freshness of the video is in the voices of students who talk from their hearts about inclusion and building circles of friends. The video is in three parts.

Part I shows the actual exercise of building a Circle of Friends.

Part II shows a small group of students and teachers discussing the in and outs of inclusion and circle building.

Part III - "May's MAP", is an excellent example of a MAP done with 12 year old students.

The video focuses on the voices of the students and the teachers who tell us over and over again that inclusion must be done, and that its really not that hard to do if you have "A little help from your friends." The book Action for Inclusion is a perfect compliment to the video. If you don't already have it, get it now. It is still one of the most inspiring pieces of video available.

Educators, Families, and anyone interested in Circle of Friends and MAPS. Elementary and Middle School focus.
