At School:school2Provide an interesting way to develop a positive attitude by children and teachers in the general classroom. For children who will be meeting a child who has special needs for the first time, lessons using Turtle Books provide an opportunity to question and become familiar with the disability in a non-threatening manner. The emphasis is placed on the similarities of the children, rather than the differences.school1

  • Help siblings understand the ways in which their new baby is different. Provide an opportunity for siblings to ask questions and express frustration without guilt or criticism.
  • Sibling may come to understand the similarities and the differences in a loving, accepting way as they read the stories of children who have problems similar to those their new brother or sister may be expected to have.
For the Child with special needs:childFor children with special needs, Turtle Books present heroes who look like them, have problems like theirs and have similar doubts and feelings. The books have developed from the everyday challenges facing the child and the caregiver. Problems like eating, moving, cooperating with therapists seem so simple, but often seem insurmountable to those involved on a daily basis.
