I Am Going For A Walk Around The Washington, D.C. Tidal Basin! A New Ability Guidebook for DC!

My recent National Education Association Foundation Global Fellow Conference was in Washington, D.C. and I took the opportunity to get a lot of pictures for new books. Many thanks to the NEA Foundation for bringing me to the capitol which allowed me to get these made!

A New Ability Guidebook for Washington, D.C.! I Am Going To The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial!

Ability Guidebook_ I Am Going To The MLK Memorial-2This past weekend was the National Education Association Foundation Global Fellows Conference. The NEA has chosen educators from all over the country to represent US education in South Africa next summer. I am thrilled to be one of them.

In my usual fashion I ran from the building during our down time to create some new books for Washington, D.C.  It is always an honor to walk through the capitol in my opinion and I am constantly moved by the grand architecture and the beautiful memorials.  My hope is that these books will help people with autism to experience this amazing city.

It is always a very happy to announce another Ability Guidebook. This is book number 49!  There are now four books for DC. Let your special education teacher friends or autism programs know!

Ability Guidebooks are the creation of Brett Bigham, the 2014 Oregon State Teachers of the Year. Many people with autism become stressed out with new experiences. Ability Guidebooks help alleviate that stress by allowing people with autism a chance to see what is coming up.  There are now Guidebooks for eleven different countries in four different languages with more coming up!

They make great field trip guides for general education students too!
