Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0525456465, Hardcover)There is a special classroom in many schools for children with disabilities. With intimate photos, Ellen Senisi takes readers inside this fascinating but often overlooked place. The story is based on a true incident. A girl teases a disabled child and is asked to spend time in the special-needs classroom. Through her, readers are introduced to an engaging group of kids and to a wide range of disabling conditions--epilepsy, Down syndrome, autism, and more. Readers also see students run an obstacle course in physical therapy, mold clay in art therapy, and learn the sign- language story of the Little Red Hen in speech class. This is a thorough introduction to a special-needs program. It will make children feel familiar with this unique learning environment--one that isn't far from their own classrooms.
