This weekend I was in Washington, D.C. for the National Education Association Foundation’s Global Fellowship conference. I am excited to say that I have been named an NEA Global Fellow and will travel to South Africa representing US educators. There are only a couple of teachers who have ever been named to this prestigious Fellowship twice and I’m proud to represent special educators.
In 2015 I was sent to Peru to meet with teachers and leaders in the Peru Department of Education. This Ability Guidebook came from that visit and I am forever grateful to the NEA Foundation for allowing me to make my first international Guidebooks.
During this year’s conference I found myself sitting next to Sarah Merchlewits. When I showed her I Am Going To The Larco Museum she volunteered to translate it into Spanish! I am thrilled to share ¡Yo Voy al Museo Larco!

Lima now has three Ability Guidebooks! Maybe one day every museum will have one!
I Am Going To The Larco Museum, Lima,, Peru
A beautiful city park. A whole bunch of cats. What’s not to love?
This is my second book for Lima and my third book for Peru! These books help people with autism get out into the world. That is my way of saying thank you to Peru for being such a lovely host during my visit!

One of these days I am going to get completely caught up! One book at a time…
In the summer of 2015 I travelled to Peru as a National Education Association Global Fellow. It was an amazing experience and we saw some of the great museums and cultural sights of Peru including Machu Picchu. The Peru Department of Education welcomed us and we toured schools and met students and teachers at one of Peru’s most respected schools and again at one of Peru’s poorest school. It was an incredibly enriching experience.
My way of paying back the lovely people of Peru who treated me with such kindness and respect is to make Ability Guidebooks. I’ve previously posted a book for the Inca Museum in Cusco and now I’m thrilled to add another book to the list for Peru.
