The word disability can sometimes be confusing to a child. Literature helps children understand real-life situations in their own language. Here are some books you may find helpful when talking to your child:

  • A Friend Like Simon by Kate Gaynor (Autism)

  • Don’t Call Me Special by Pat Thomas (Physical Disability)

  • Shelley the Hyperactive Turtle by Deborah M. Moss (ADHD)

  • We’ll Paint the Octopus Red by Stephanie Stuve-Bodeen (Down Syndrome)

Woodbine House specializes in books about children with special needs. Please visit their website for more information:
