Meet the Author

The Special Needs Acceptance Book is an interactive, educational, and character-building book that introduces children to the challenges faced by people with special needs while also supporting their personal journey toward appreciating and respecting people's differences.
This book offers educational information, conversation-starters, and engaging exercises that invite children to "walk in someone else's shoes" as they learn to treat others the same ways they would like to be treated themselves. The book covers a range of disabilities including autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, learning disabilities like dyslexia, ADHD, blindness and deafness. It also empowers children by helping them understand the power of their actions and how they can be a good friend to others. Finally, it shows children that we are all different, all special, and all of us like to be accepted and understood!

This book is one in a refreshing and unique series by author, Ellen Sabin. Her other books include: The Giving Book: Open the Door to a Lifetime of Giving, The Hero Book: Learning Lessons From the People You Admire, The Healing Book: Facing the Death, and Celebrating the Life, of Someone You Love, and The Autism Acceptance Book. The Watering Can Press web site offers free parents and teachers' guides to further enhance the value of these important and informative books in classrooms and other group settings.

    A reviewer

    This is an expanded version of 'The Autism Acceptance Book,' by the same author, and does the same invaluable good work of engaging and encouraging young people to consider the world from the point of view of people with special needs while exhorting them to embrace, accept, and support others regardless of differences they might not have encountered before. Like all of the author's books, it's fun without being pat, and interactive without seeming overly didactic. Overall, it's that rarity among children's books: accessible, smart, and ultimately rewarding, and a perfect gift-- not just for the recipient, but for the giver as well.
