It is always fun when I get a book done for another country! I’m really pleased to announce India has another book! Anyone want to translate??!
Every time I go on a trip I try to get at least one Ability Guidebook out of it. In September I had the honor to speak on a panel for ECRA-The Education Civil Rights Alliance. I’m proud to be one of their Fellowship of Leading Educators who are fighting for social justice. My hotel was just off of Dupont Circle so I will have several books coming out for that neighborhood in the coming weeks!
It’s a very busy time but somehow I’ve managed to get the first Guidebook for Argentina done!! Mike has promised to translate it into Spanish but if you can translate, Please volunteer!
I am thrilled to share that Constantine, Algeria has its first Ability Guidebook for the Monument Aux Morts! This beautiful memorial sits high on a cliff above the city and is known for its amazing view.
This is an awesome new project called Jrney.org. They are sharing regular teacher’s stories about how they have globalized their practice. I’m proud to be one of the first to share!
Stanley Park, over 1000 acres of forested parklands was recently named the best urban park in the world by Trip Advisor. This amazing piece of nature has an amazing amount of things to see and experience. Over 200 birds species live in the park, there are swimming pools, statues, the Vancouver Aquarium, the miles-long seawall (which has its own Ability Guidebook) and more! If you ever visit Vancouver, you MUST visit this park!!!!
I am so pleased that Random House Magazine is carrying a series of blogs about the Social Justice Book List. I’m even more pleased that one of them is mine–I think I have a lot to say on this subject!
Mount Rushmore is one of those places every American should visit! It truly is inspiring and there is good reason that so many international visitors make the long trek to Sout Dakota to visit.
The Langelinie area in Copenhagen not only has the Little Mermaid, it has an amazing park full of monuments and history and a pier that and marina that welcomes thousands of tourists as their cruise ships dock nearby. These Ability Guidebooks are a support for people with autism who have stress from new situations. I hope it opens some doors!
