Maples, Lucy; Applin, Janet L.
Community & Junior College Libraries, v15 n4 p176-187 2009
This article takes on the issue of understanding children with special needs by providing an annotated bibliography of stories about children with special needs. Four areas are addressed: autism spectrum disorders, Down syndrome, Tourette syndrome, and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. Each area is described with its typical characteristics. Then a list of books telling stories (as opposed to pure informational texts) helps both children and adults to understand and relate to children with these special needs.
