Written by Dr. Jo Anne White, More Heaven shows us the power of never giving up on anyone or anything and helps us see things in the ever-powerful light of making a difference and helping children bring their own powerful light to the world in any setting.
The book shows one pioneer teacher’s journey from challenge to success that she and her students with autism and special needs traveled.
Dr. Jo Anne White’s Award winning and International Bestselling book: More Heaven: Because Every Child Is Special is based on a true story about the many lives it changed, including her own: An inspirational Story of the journey of one teacher and her students with autism and special needs who mount a tireless battle to shift the tide toward the acceptance of people who are different.
Based on a true story, More Heaven: Because Every Child is Special about six children with autism and special needs and their teacher who gives them a chance at learning and life. Despite challenges and a lack of support, Miss Tina Randolph's commitment to reach, teach, and inspire these children is unwavering.
By accepting their uniqueness and participating in their private fantasy world, while at the same time engaging them in the real world, she eventually succeeds. Tina, her teacher's aide, Kaye, and the children mount a tireless, daily battle to shift the tide toward the acceptance of people who are different.
The experiment, begun in chaotic, uncharted waters, bridges the gap of understanding and paves the way for the inclusionary practices of education and society's acceptance of children and adults with special needs. This is a road that continues to need paving, making the messages in More Heaven: Because Every Child Is Special equally relevant today.
The book evolved from an experiment in the Philadelphia school system in the late 1970's in response to the 1975 Education for the Handicapped Act, ruling that public schools in the US educate all children with disabilities, despite their severity.
Previously, many of these special needs children were kept at home-isolated and denied access to the mainstream. More Heaven is a powerful story of compassion, determination, disappointment, triumph, and love.
More Heaven reaches in from the heart outward to all children; they will be heard!
