The Learning To Learn Program

Cari Ebert

To develop, learn, and have meaningful relationships with other people, toddlers with autism need a core set of foundation skills on which to build. The Learning to Learn Program is designed for early intervention providers to use with families and caregivers. It includes assessment checklists, suggested goals and outcomes, along with specific intervention strategies for facilitating development of five core foundation skills including 1) nonverbal imitation, 2) joint attention, 3) sensory processing and self-regulation, 4) purposeful play, and 5) early language development. Young children with autism and other neurodevelopmental delays often struggle with acquisition of the these critical skills. When these foundation skills are absent or inconsistently displayed, it is difficult for struggling learners to make functional gains. This program offers a roadmap for helping young children with autism build foundation skills through playful interactions with parents and caregivers.

Scattered All Over The Earth

Yoko Tawada New Directions Publishing

A mind-expanding, cheerfully dystopian new novel by Yoko Tawada, winner of the 2022 National Book Award Welcome to the not-too-distant future: Japan, having vanished from the face of the earth, is now remembered as “the land of sushi.” Hiruko, its former citizen and a climate refugee herself, has a job teaching immigrant children in Denmark with her invented language Panska (Pan-Scandinavian): “homemade language. no country to stay in. three countries I experienced. insufficient space in brain. so made new language. homemade language.” As she searches for anyone who can still speak her mother tongue, Hiruko soon makes new friends. Her troupe travels to France, encountering an umami cooking competition; a dead whale; an ultra-nationalist named Breivik; unrequited love; Kakuzo robots; red herrings; uranium; an Andalusian matador. Episodic and mesmerizing scenes flash vividly along, and soon they’re all next off to Stockholm. With its intrepid band of companions, Scattered All Over the Earth (the first novel of a trilogy) may bring to mind Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland or a surreal Wind in the Willows, but really is just another sui generis Yoko Tawada masterwork.

Filled with anecdotes, observations, and recommendations from professionals on the front line of transformative education, case histories, and groundbreaking research, Creative Schools aims to inspire teachers, parents, and policy makers alike to rethink the real nature and purpose of education.

Warger, Eavy & Associates

This guide is designed to provide information on ensuring quality special education services and early intervention to building principals in elementary and middle schools. It sets forth standards of excellence that directly relate to implementing the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and presents guidelines for principals to use when assessing themselves and their school community.

The guide is organized around the following categories: (1) school organization, which addresses the need for an adequate supply of qualified personnel; (2) leadership; (3) curriculum and instruction, which addresses student access to a high-quality curriculum, provision of adequate financial and material resources, and use of effective instructional practices; (4) staff development; (5) school climate, which addresses the need to ensure all children feel respected and welcome; and (6) assessment. For each section, standards are presented along with specific guidelines.
