Books About Children With Special Needs
If your child has a learning difference of any kind, this might be a great book to read together. Jill’s collected 15 stories of children and adults (like illustrator and author, Jerry Pinkney) — each person shares their story of having a learning difference. Sneak a peak here.
Isn’t it interesting? And, did you see the space for your child to write his or her own story? Jill is an expert in learning disabilities and a wonderful advocate. This book represents her desire to encourage and inspire children diagnosed with learning differences. Thanks, Jill!
Kids With Disabilities Series from Mason Crest Publishing
All these books begin with a narrative of a child then include information about the topic such as diagnosing, causes, therapy, school, and more.
I wish these books were more kid-friendly and engaging like the layout of books published by National Geographic Kids. However, they still might be good resources.
Speed Racer explains that kids with ADHD aren’t bad or lazy, they just have an extra challenge to overcome, and with help, that challenge can be overcome. Having attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder isn’t the end of the world, and kids with ADHD can still succeed in their lives, have fun with friends, and enjoy the world around them.
The Hidden Child can be used as a tool to help children understand their peers with Autism better, creating a more accepting environment for autistic kids.
Understanding the causes and effects of a learning disability, as well as ways to overcome it, are important for kids dealing with these types of disabilities—and it is also important for people who know someone dealing with them. Why Can’t I Learn Like Everyone Else is a resource for educators, counselors, parents and librarians to help kids cope with learning disabilities.
