Special education should be seen as a first rate and creative education that enables all special needs children to fulfill their potential. This book is the story of an innovative school in Australia that challenges the reader to re-think how special education is taught. Port Phillip Specialist School has received national and international recognition as a best practice model for educating children with special needs. The school has a unique three-pronged approach to education. It uses: 1) a full service school model, in which a wide-range of educational, medical, paramedical, and mental health services operate collaboratively within the school; 2) an integrated model of service delivery, in which teachers, specialists, and therapists collaborate to address the specific needs of each student, embedding therapy in all classroom activities; and 3) an arts-based curriculum that uses dance, drama, music, and the visual arts to teach literacy, numeracy, and living skills. An Extraordinary School will inspire those who want to re-model how special education can be taught, and the story of Port Phillip Specialist School illustrates how effective the entire community can be in making change happen. This is a must-read book for educators, parents, care providers, and therapists of children with special needs. *** An Extraordinary School is edited by Sara James, a 1999 Emmy Award winner who has served as a correspondent for NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw and Dateline NBC, as well as a substitute co-anchor for Today. James now lives in Melbourne, Australia with her husband and two daughters. *** "...easy to read and contains much dialogue to illustrate how the school's staff functions as a team....it is refreshing to read a book whose contributors are so dedicated to their educational mission. Recommended." - Choice, May 2013, Vol. 50, No. 09
