Approximately 17% of all children have some type of developmental disability, and the number is growing every day.
We know that not all kids are the same, so each book addresses a different symptom, not a disorder. This way, our stories can benefit "typical" children who might have difficulties in one area while also helping kids diagnosed with learning disabilities.
Do you know a child who never seems to sit still?
Grab your running shoes and follow a day in the life of Zanny, a little boy who simply CANNOT stop moving!
These fun, witty, picture books and apps are a way of helping children with limitations understand their symptoms better in a positive and engaging way while trying to boost their self-esteem.
iPad app features include:
"The Extra Special Feelings Game" is for kids with Autism, Asperger's Syndrome, PDD, young children, or anyone who needs help with recognizing feelings and facial expressions.
All kids go crazy for Zanny's antics, but particularly "extra special" kids who love to see themselves in living color.
