Students in general education and special education classes will learn from and be moved by this collection of field-tested, personal cases. Overton asked family members from diverse income levels and racial and ethnic groups, whose children varied in age and learning challenge, to record their personal stories. Many of these family members were not well-known or active in their children's schools; their cases facilitate an understanding and respect for the variety of families in which children live. The resulting set of cases will stimulate reflection, provoke discussion, and encourage the determination of best practices to support and bring about collaboration with all families.

Activities, margin notes, and author commentaries emphasize and clarify points, facilitate reflection, and tie theory and research to each story. This compelling book can make a difference for those who work with students with special needs and their family members.
