Summary "Matching children with special needs to books and stories that will motivate and engage them, this book is a valuable collection for any parent, grandparent, caregiver, or teacher who lives or works with young people who have disabilities. This vast and varied selection of books offers individuals who may be isolated by their differences the security and companionship of stories they can identify with. Describing more than 100 stories featuring characters who have disabilities--from physical handicaps, ADHD, Asperger's syndrome, and dyslexia to survivors of psychological or physical trauma--the guide points to narratives that can help make these conditions understandable and familiar. Selecting books that dissolve limitations and spark the imagination, this resource helps all kinds of adults and children empathize and truly connect"-- Provided by publisher.
