Penn State School of Visual Arts Professor Karen Keifer-Boyd has co-authored Including Difference: A Communitarian Approach to Art Education in the Least Restrictive Environment with Michelle Kraft.  Published by the National Art Education Association, Including Difference combines concepts related to analysis of the current special education law and case law, issues related to pre-service teacher education, and strategies to address the varied needs of a broad spectrum of learners within the art class setting.
