Books On Children With Special Needs

“We have no special-needs children. Just children…with special needs.” – Uwe Maurer

Every parent of a child with special needs knows that parenting can be a frustrating and challenging journey. When these children enter adulthood, the difficulties become even greater. Special-education-degree.net says many parents of special-needs children will try to get their hands on every book on children with special needs, but not all are informative or worth the time and money. Some books stand out though – such as, 'Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew', an Updated and Expanded Edition by Ellen Notbohm, that offers a hopeful perspective from an author who has had first-hand experience as a mother of autistic children.

According to an article titled, 'Essential First Steps For Parents Of Children With Autism', by Lara Delmolino and Sandra L. Harris published in autismbookstore.com in 2013, parents often are clueless as to where to start. Books on children with special needs can come in handy during such situations as they outline the pivotal steps parents can take to optimise learning in such children.

'Thinking Differently: An Inspiring Guide for Parents of Children with Learning Disabilities', by David Flink is an innovative and comprehensive guide, which is the first of its kind that helps parents understand and accept learning disabilities in their children.

Apart from normal books, picture books such as' Good Night', 'Commander' by Ahmad Akbarpour and 'My Brother Sammy Is Special' by Becky Edwards are good examples of picture books on children with special needs.
