In the Picture- Writing stories

In our group home we often have to turn to children’s resources in order to get something across to our adult individuals with developmental disability; a fire safety video last year, for instance. (State regulations mandate annual fire safety training for our individuals.)

Similarly, parents of children with disabilities have often found the children’s literature that is available to be lacking in children’s characters that have disabilities. Wouldn’t it be great if there were some books with such characters for children with disabilites to relate to?

Well, its happening. Aspiring writers with disabilities and parents of children with disabilites are teaming up with creative writers and major disability charities to encourage publishers to act on this matter.

Here’s the story from Liverpool John Moores University, June, 2006: http://www.ljmu.ac.uk/NewsCentre/81107.htm
