Don't call me special - a first look at disability ISBN: 9780750235563
Harker, Lesley and Thomas, Pat
Published by Hodder Wayland (A First Look At series), 2001
An upbeat book that introduces the general concept of disability in positive ways. In the warm, expressive pictures we meet many sorts of disability, and the point is made early on that assumptions about people's abilities (or lack of them) must never be made simply because they use a wheelchair or wear glasses or are slower at learning. The theme throughout is acceptance. There is a page of information for teachers on how to use the book, a list of recommended reading, and a list of useful contacts.
