Editorial Reviews

This book is an easy read. Any layman could get a clear understanding of what the author is imparting. The emphasis on the elements Cooperation, Collaboration, and Coordination as they relate to the relationship between schools and the students' families are viable strategies in meeting the needs of all students (inclusive of the Haves and Have Not's). I believe the concepts discussed could easily foster "Buy-In" by all concerned parties. This book may provide the key ingredients for service delivery and program success.
