I Have Tourette's
But Tourette's
Doesn't Have Me 
By Ellen Goosenber-Kent
Produced in association with the Tourette Syndrome Association (TSA), this film is an insightful documentary that takes a candid look at the lives of several American children growing up with Tourette Syndrome (TS). In every school in United States, it's likely that at least one child has TS and many parents and educators don't recognize the symptoms, and often the disorder goes undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. In this 30-minute documentary, over a dozen children ages 6-13 are interviewed about what it is like to grow up with TS, what measures they are taking to control it, and the challenges they face in their efforts to be accepted into the social mainstream as a "normal" kid.

 Behavior Solutions for
the Inclusive Classroom
  behavior solutions 
By Beth Anne, Beth Burt,
& Peter Gennaro

  As inclusion becomes the norm in general education, teachers are faced with behaviors they have never seen before. Special needs educators may recognize the telltale symptom of a sensory need or a text-book case of an avoidance behavior, but this is all new territory for the general-ed crowd! Written by Director of Special Education Peter Gennaro, occupational therapist Beth Aune, and special needs mom and advocate Beth Burt, this book illuminates possible causes of those mysterious behaviors, and more importantly, provides solutions. Teachers can quickly look up an in-the-moment solution and learn what the child may be communicating, and why.
