Here's my weekly gathering of events, activities, and sites of interest that have landed in my e-mail queue or otherwise caught my attention this week:
+ Jessica Kingsley Publishers is honoring National Bullying Prevention Month with a 10 percent discount on all its bullying titles through the end of October. Read more about the details in the JKP e-mail on the offer, and browse bullying titles on the JKP site.
+ Author Danica Surette posted on the About.com Children With Special Needs Facebook page about her book Brynn's Bizarre Behavior, described on its Amazon.com page as "a realistic look at one child's everyday life, good and bad, with Tourette's syndrome. This book describes how different, and similar Brynn is from everyone else. This book is a wonderful tool to help teach acceptance and tolerance of others." For more children's books on special needs, check my list or write a review yourself.
+ The Inclusive Class Podcast, which I co-host but for which Nicole Eredics does all the work, is having a special hour-long episode this Friday on the topic of "When Schools Say No to Inclusion," something all too many of us have familiarity with. Participating in a roundtable discussion will be inclusion experts Tom Mihail, Frances Stetson, Torrie Dunlap, Lisa Rudy, Kathleen McClaskey, Paula Kluth, and Mary Ulrich. The discussion will be moderated by Lauri Hunt, who is currently battling a school's refusal of inclusion for her son with the I Stand With Henry campaign. You'll have to be at your computer at 9 a.m. Eastern to hear it live, but you can download the episode later and listen whenever you like. Read more about the participants and the podcast on The Inclusive Class site.
