  1. Thanks for this very comprehensive list! My 10-year old was recently diagnosed with a learning disability in Math, but she loves to read. You’ve inspired a mother-daughter book club to help us both adjust.

    1. Yay! Your book club sounds like so much fun! My son will often come to me telling me about his latest favorite book. Then he’ll suggest, “Mommy, you should really read it. I think you would like it!”

  2. Thank you for this amazing list of books! I am a education major in gradute school and look forward to adding these books into my lessons!

  3. You should add this book as it talks about a FPIES, a not very well known food “allergy”… Pursey’s FPIES Surprise. The author has a child with FPIES and wanted a way for her to explain it to her friends. It is available on Amazon.

    1. Thank you so much for adding this! Both of my boys have food sensitivities and one has several straight up allergies – I will definitely check this one out!

  4. Please consider adding my book, “How Katie Got a Voice (and a cool new nickname).” This will educate students about children who are non speaking and who use assistive technology. The book ends with a section on disability etiquette. Written by a speech/language pathologist. Thank you.

    1. I was so happy to have found your book – there aren’t enough stories that discuss sensory issues as compared to the number of kids that deal with them daily. Thank you so much for writing Max & Me!

  5. Thank you so much for this list. This is a must-have list for every parent! I recently read “The Ostrich and Other Lost Things” by Beth Hautala. It’s a beautiful story about a tween and her older brother who has autism.

    Also, I made a pdf of your article so I can take it with me to the library. Is there a way I can share it with you so it can be accessed from your article?
