Seeing the Charade

What we need to do and undo to make Friendships Happen

by Carol Tashie, Susan Shapiro-Barnard & Zach Rossetti

Conclusion by Jamie Burke

Seeing the Charade is a book that examines the reasons why friendship is such an elusive goal for so many students and disability labels. It explores the barriers to friendship that exist in our schools and communities and offers specific strategies for how we can support students to have the kind of social lives they want and deserve. Though written in an easy-to-read conversational style, the words are strong, as is not he not-so-subtle suggestion that much of what we do in the name of special education actually serves to prevent friendships from happening. Seeing the Charade is a must read for anyone interested in making friendship a reality for the students they know and love.
