The largest minority in America is the population of people with special needs. Children live in a world full of people who are different from each other in all sorts of ways. Helping them to understand their peers, their family members, or even themselves will create greater acceptance and respect.
Watering Can Press published The Autism Acceptance Book in 2006 to create more understanding and acceptance of children with autism. The book was embraced by parents, teachers and others touched by autism, as an invaluable tool that filled an important and unmet need to help children with autism be understood and accepted. After the book’s publication, we began receiving emails and calls from the parents, teachers, and communities who care about kids with other special needs—asking for more books on other disabilities so more children’s lives can be enhanced.
The Special Needs Acceptance Book is a tool for teachers seeking to inspire understanding in their classrooms, parents trying to encourage a more accepting environment for their children, and caring individuals hoping to show this generation of kids that we are all different, we are all special, and we all deserve to be understood and accepted.
This book is ideal for use in classrooms, camps, and other group settings.
(A free Teacher's Guide is available to help teachers maximize the impact of the book.)
