The fourth Ability Guidebook for Finland is for their most famous building! I present:
In a perfect world every airport, train station and metro would have books like these! Here is my third book for Finland!
Helsinki now has two Ability Guidebooks! I present:
My first book for Finland is finished in English, not Finnish! I am thrilled to announce: I Am Going To The Ateneum Art Museum!
To round out my books for the Art Museum of Estonia I give you: I Am Going To The Niguliste Museum!
I am thrilled to announce another international Ability Guidebook! This one is for the KUMU art museum in Tallinn, Estonia!
Here is my newest Ability Guidebook for the Mikkel Museum in Tallinn, Estonia! I am excited to offer these supports for people in Estonia who have autism. If you speak Estonian, I’d love to get them translated!
It is always a great day when I get a new Ability Guidebook done but today is special since it is in a new country! Introducing: I Am Going To The Kadriorg Art Museum in Tallinn, Estonia!!
If you know anyone who speaks Estonian, send them my way!
It is always fun when I get a new Ability Guidebook finished! I am inspired because I have had a volunteer step forward to translate the books into Italian! You cannot Imagine how exciting it was to get that email! I am writing these books for Italy knowing that only a few English speaking tourists might ever need them.
But I knew that once the books were in English, if I could find someone to translate, they could then be a valuable tool for people with autism who live in, or who are visiting Rome.
My hope is that I will inspire some people in Italy to step forward and make some books of their own! Even now my friend Bill Pierce is visiting Vienna taking pictures to create some additional Ability Guidebooks. Some of Sam Sennott’s students at Portland State University chose to make a book instead of doing a final paper. These are more awesome people stepping up to help create a permanant library of supports for people with autism! (And a support for teachers who are taking their younger students on field trips to these important cultural destinations). I am thrilled to have Bill join me in this project and the students of PSU as well!
If anyone has decent pictures of the Vatican Museum entry I sure could use them….mine turned out pretty poorly.
