You've found Special Needs Project -- a unique disability bookstore. We carry books, videos, DVDs and related items about mental and physical disabilities...for parents, professionals, educators, family members and persons with a disability. We have the largest collection of books about autism spectrum disorders (nearly 800 titles) we know of.
In 1869, John Muir wrote, "When we try to pick out anything by itself we find that it is bound fast by a thousand invisible cords that cannot be broken, to everything in the universe." That's surely true of human growth and existence. At Special Needs Project we do our best to be a comprehensive resource for the entire community concerned with disability and child development. If there are books or other materials you think we should offer--we hope you will share them with us.
Meet Thotso by Rachel Robb Avery and Fern Phillips is an engaging 30-page board book children (and adults) will love.
There are interactive devices on almost every page. The book introduces Thotso the Brain and Thotso's thinking patterns that build a child's resiliency and self-esteem through positive thinking skills.
You can find Special Needs Project on line, obviously. But do you know that
SNP exhibits all the time at conferences and events? Our popup special needs
bookstores are famous. If you would like one at your meeting, talk to Laraine.
"Back to School..."? Just about.
Our Fall conference schedule is shaping up. We'll be at the MIND Institute in Davis, CA this weekend, and in two weeks we will be with Dena Gassner and Michelle Garcia Winner in Los Angeles.
Later in September it's Phoenix, where Temple Grandin keynotes.
A special updated edition of Temple's The Way I See It will be released in time for that event.
