"Finally a book outlining a strengths-based approaches to education! We CAN focus on identifying what works for the child, instead of focusing on what is "wrong" with the child. Language is powerful and these children need us (educators, parents, service providers, etc.) to be the change. By focusing on what a child can do, and using those strengths to set goals to help address a particular need, teachers and parents can provide their students with greater opportunities for success. This then fosters higher self-esteem, self-determination, and self-efficacy!

Please read and share with everyone you know! Job well done Kelsie & Byron!"
