Ability Guidebook_ I Am Going To The Apartheid Museum!
I cannot thank the National Education Association Foundation’s Global Fellowship program enough for helping make this Ability Guidebook happen! As part of their program I travelled to South Africa and was able to take photos to create 12 new Ability Guidebooks. These free online supports help autistic people visit places in the community and because of the NEAF, quite a few of South Africa’s museums are now easier to visit for people with travel anxiety.
I will be adding some new books in the coming weeks with the word EASY on the cover. These are a new set of Ability Guidebooks for very easy to visit destinations. I see these as simple outings with minimal steps for success. For many of my students these simple visits allowed them to have a quick and successful visit into the community. These successes prepare the students to begin visiting more complex places in the community.
I’m pleased to introduce the newest Ability Guidebook: I Am Going To See The Gandhi Statue!
There is nothing worse than taking your class to an assembly only to have to leave because one of your kids is having a melt-down. I love the outreach programs the National Park Services provide, including school visits by Woodsy Owl and Smokey the Bear.
If your children are about to meet Woodsy, here is a guide to show them the rules and help them not be scared!
And remember….give a hoot, don’t pollute!
