My Newest Ability Guidebook!! National Museum of the American Indian in D.C.

As many of you know, I have been working on my Ability Guidebooks for years but I had always stuck pretty close to home.  It was a big deal to me when I made the book for the Oregon City Elevator and Willametter Falls because they were my first books outside of Portland.

Last week I posted my new book for the Inca Museum in Cusco, Peru and was thrilled to have gone international. Today I am crossing the country and presenting my newest guide: I Am Going To The National Museum of the American Indian.

Since being Teacher of the Year I have travelled over 85,000 miles and visited many different states. I’ve taken pictures for books on every trip. My goal is to get the ball rolling in other cities with the hopes other teachers may create more books for their community.

In February I attended the NEA Gala in Washington D.C. as part of being an NEA Global Fellowand took the opportunity to visit the museum. I’m super excited that students and people with autism will now have this guide on how to visit the museum. I hope it makes their world a little bit bigger and a little bit better.Screen Shot 2016-03-12 at 1.47.16 PMAbility Guidebook Museum of the American Indian

People with autism often have difficulty facing new situations. That is why I teamed up with the Port of Portland to create “Let’s Fly, A Photo Guidebook Tour Through Portland International Airport.”  It is a step-by-step guide on what to expect when you use the Portland Airport.

I want my students to have a bigger world. Supports like these can make that happen.
