The Taste of Chicago is one of those yearly special events that can be a bit overwhelming for some people with autism. This Ability Guidebook is a step-by-step set of instructions to teach people how to attend The Taste of Chicago.
This is a very good feeling. I have just finished the ninth and final book for Riga. It has taken a pretty good numbers of hours and effort but I’m confidant that having this many books for one city can make a difference. By creating nine outing books that gives a teacher nine monthly field trip options. It gives a family a whole list of places to go.
It is hard to believe that there are now 72 Ability Guidebooks! They are a labor of love and every time I finish one I picture it helping one person get out into the world. Having this to study might make all the difference for a kid’s success on a classroom field trip.
If you speak Latvian and want to translate it, I would sure appreciate it!
I had a terrific time presenting in Chicago at NNSTOY. I only had one free afternoon but was able to make a book for a couple of great outings. There are now books for the Art Institute of Chicago and the Taste of Chicago. This new book is for Grant Park and it’s amazing art, memorials and fountains.
- The Freedom Monument is in many ways the heart of Riga. The nearby Opera and the Freedom Monument have played important roles in the history of Latvia. Enjoy your visit!

For Riga with love! If you can translate this book into Latvian I would love to hear from you! In English it is limited to how many people it can help but in Latvian it would help so many more!
This book is for a very easy outing to see the famous Bremen Town Musicians statue in Riga, Latvia!
Some of my Ability Guidebooks are for complex places with tickets, entrance halls, security and need to contain a lot of information. Some of the books are for much easier outings like visiting Torna iela in Riga, Latvia. The Latvian National Museum of Art has lined the block with Soviet-era busts either of or by famous Latvians.
This is a perfect outing for someone who is just learning how to travel into the community. Sometimes these books can be layered. The first trip might just be a walk around the building you want to visit on a later date.
I loved this street in Riga. We did not know about it and stumbled upon it when we care around the corner. I hope you enjoy visiting!
I’m so thrilled to be getting so many books finished lately! I am subbing, or being a “Guest Teacher” for this first part of the year to allow me to get all these projects caught up. I hope to do a few more books for Riga and then I’m moving on to Greece
This is a new support for people with autism in Riga! I am hoping to find someone to translate into Latvian! If you know anyone who would donate their time to getting these into the local languages, that would be terrific!!!
