Center on Human Policy Publications
Throughout its long history, the Center on Human Policy has been a strong voice for the full inclusion of people with disabilities in the community. With the distribution of its publications, the Center has always had a goal to improve society's literacy about disabilities by demonstrating that the greatest obstacles faced by people with disabilities are societally imposed.
Through its funded projects, the Center distributes bulletins, research reports, journal articles, information packages, and other materials on a broad range of topics related to integration or inclusion for people with disabilities (our "Community Integration Report Series"), primarily concerning those who have been labeled with cognitive disabilities. These resources have been prepared by Center staff and associates, including Responsive Systems Associates (John O'Brien and Connie Lyle O'Brien).
Through the Human Policy Press, the Center distributes posters, classic books, t-shirts, buttons and other novelty items that promote positive attitudes towards people with disabilities.
Early Childhood Direction Center Publications
The Mid-State Early Childhood Direction Center (ECDC) distributes booklets, bulletins, checklists, and other resources primarily concerning the inclusion of children with special needs birth to five.
Institute on Communication and Inclusion Publications
Formerly the Facilitated Communication Institute, a major focus of the ICI is public education and dissemination of current research and resources related to communication, disability and inclusion.
