We are committed to building a world where everyone is fully included as a contributing citizen – in their community. We have assembled a wide range of resources that we hope will assist you on your journey to inclusion in your community.
Inclusion has emerged through the relentless efforts of many people. We have gathered some of the books, articles and videos created by some of our close friends and colleagues. No list is complete – but there are invaluable resources available to you in this collection if you are interested in making change…
is an extensive collection of books and articles – MOST are free downloads – grouped by author – representing a ‘slice’ of the deep roots – decades of foundational work on inclusion by many like minded thinkers and advocates.
Person-Centered Planning: PATH, MAPS & CIRCLES
PATH; MAPS & Circles – an extensive collection of resources
Many of the resources we have gathered are no longer in print – but the wisdom, learning and stories they reveal remain fresh and relevant. Deep deep and enjoy.
Staff Development Resources
Powerful teams need solid values, mastery in skills, and the capacity to listen and unpack the gifts and capacities of people we work with. We hope these resources are helpful.
A collection of links to organizations and programs that we hope will be useful to you. They broaden our reach and thus increase our capacity.
Literacy and School Resources
A collection of links with a focus on resources for schools and literacy programs.
Indigenous web links
The impact of colonialism in its many facets is still alive and causing harm. These links document elements of the current Canadian (and basically North American) struggles (and abuses) of slow genocide policies that were designed to eliminate indigenous peoples. The parallels to the eugenic policies and practices imposed on people with disabilities have frightening parallels.
Dealing with Change (formerly Tools for Change)
In 2001, Inclusion Press created a CD-ROM titled Tools for Change. It was a 15 year compendium of resources we had used in many contexts. The CD-ROM is no longer available, but the contents are now here for your use – free. We hope they are useful.
ABCD in ACTION (the Contents of the ABCD DVD)
Parallel to the book “Who Cares Enough to Act”, we created a CD-ROM entitled ABCD in ACTION. It was travelled around the world and been a powerful resouce for this work. However, CD-ROM technology is ‘history’, so we have finally put all the content of the CD on line – so you can once again access to brilliance of Mike Green, Henry Moore and John McKnight.
