Review: Beyond the Crayon
"Finally! A DVD that not only talks about inclusion, asks the important questions related to the issues of inclusion but also SHOWS us how it is done—in the classroom and in the planning states before the classroom. . . . Paula has made facilitating these workshops fun and easy. . . a MUST HAVE in every school library, college, university, and parent resource centre."
Review: The Inclusive Class
"To an educator, having strategies that can be used in the classroom immediately is one of the most important pieces to a professional development video and Paula's DVD does not disappoint. . . I highly recommend Paula Kluth's, "You're Going to Love This Kid!" A Professional Development Package for Teaching Students with Autism in the Inclusive Classroom. . . . After watching her video I am inspired and motivated to continue working toward education for all children, regardless of ability!"

"An essential tool for any educator planning to teach or present on the topic of inclusive schooling . . . I look forward to using these materials in many different ways in university coursework and professional development trainings!"
Review by: Jane Ryan, former (retired) special education administrator, Chicago Public Schools
"A must for staff and administrators who are serious about getting inclusion right . . . makes the important point that inclusion is not just about students with disabilities but about recognizing the diverse needs and the value of all students. The only thing that would make this professional development tool better is if Paula Kluth came with it."
Review by: Patricia A. Daley, Director of Special Education
"Our work with Paula Kluth has created an intense focus on presuming competence of all learners . . . Using the lens of presumed competence, we are breaking down barriers and creating a school system that believes, expects, and acts as if all students can and will learn. Principals have expressed how this lens is changing the culture of expectations in their schools and are thankful to have worked with Paula Kluth!"

"Thanks to this new DVD, entire teams and faculties will be have the opportunity to experience Paula's inspiring blend of philosophical and ethical commitment to inclusion and practical strategies that teachers can use to benefit ALL kids . . . I can't wait to share this terrific resource with schools!"
Review by: Dr. Debra Leach, Assistant Professor of Special Education, Winthrop University
"Unique, ground-breaking, and much needed . . . shows the commitment Paula Kluth has to increasing the quantity and quality of inclusive experiences for students with autism spectrum disorders across all grade levels. All teacher preparation programs and school districts should make these materials part of their training on inclusive schools."
