Win-Win Advice for the Inclusive Classroom – by Barbara Tien and Claire Clelland
This advice book is all about advocacy; working together to make a difference in a child’s life. It is about communication; caring enough to respectfully help others understand better what you need from them. This book is about teaching; not just the kids but the adults in their lives. It is about best practices that evolve from innovative teaching and from allowing yourself to be the student rather than the teacher.
The mantra “Live It, Learn It, Love It” reflects each author’s personal journey of inclusion – one as a Speech-Language Pathologist and the other as a parent of a child with Down syndrome who was inspired to enter the education field. Barbara and Claire are privileged to have met many wonderful families over the past 20 years, who have welcomed them as a companion and confidante. Their stories are intertwined in the advice within this book, as they have been our best teachers.

Parent Accolades for the Experience that Resulted in this Book.
“We want you to know that in the beginning when we were grasping at anything which would help us to be positive you were there. Thank you for being part of our family.”
“Thirteen years of Greg’s 16 precious years have included you. I don’t remember one of those years where you were not helping me find strength or strategies to overcome another barrier.”
“You’ve been a terrific support for us and continued to believe in Paul even when others had given up on him. We’re looking forward to a year of hard work, and a lot more successes.”
“I sure appreciate your ever lasting heart, soul, and commitment to our children. Our kids would not have a fraction of success without your determination, blood, sweat, tears and generosity. Thank you for believing in our children and in me.”
