A Seat on the Playground

I encourage any one working with children with disabilities to read this book. I have been a person with a disability for over 38 years. I am an advocate and a professor and found this author who happens to be my wife to be truly open with this book and as a result revealed some wonderful insight into how educators working with children with specials needs should connect with their students ~ well done!
