The First Ability Guidebook in Greek!!! Πηγαίνω στον Παρθενώνα! A free support to help people with αυτισμό!

This was Christmas in November for me!  I am so excited to share that an amazing teacher from Greece, Kiriaki Mellow, has translated “I Am Going To The Parthenon!” into Greek!!!!  This Ability Guidebook now becomes a tool so support local teachers and families to help people with autism get out into the community more.

I am so grateful to Kiriaki for her help in this. I know these books can help people with autism, and I am proud and happy every time I make a new one, but they are limited if they are only in English. Kiriaki just opened doors that I cannot open by myself.

If you know any teachers in Greece, please share this out. Not only are they awesome for people with autism, but they can alleviate stress for people who have anxiety about going to unknown places. And, believe me, every elementary school teacher who takes a class to the Parthenon can benefit by using this as a field trip guide!

Again, thanks to Kiriaki and to the staff at the Acropolis.

Έχετε μια καταπληκτική μέρα!

My Ninth And Final Ability Guidebook For Riga. I Am Going To Kronvalda Park! Free International Supports For People With Autism.

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.

Riga’s Fourth Ability Guidebook! Free Resources For People With Autism!

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!
