Event Details

Please join us for an Inclusion Celebration!! This special event celebrates the release of Dr. Kathryn Fishman-Weaver’s new book, When Your Child Learns Differently: A Family Approach for Navigating Special Education Services with Love and High Expectations. This family-friendly gathering features resource tables, children’s activities, and a book talk and signing with the author.

Additionally, we are thrilled to open with special performances by the DanceAbility dancers and possibly the Special Olympics Cheer team. Both this important new-release and our bookshop event celebrate advocacy, inclusion and community. All children’s activities have been designed with accessibility in mind. The following organizations will be participating in the festivities:

-Thompson Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders
-Special Olympics Missouri
-Columbia, MO Special Education, Parent Teacher Association

Advocating for a child who learns differently can sometimes feel like an isolating and daunting task. Dr. Fishman-Weaver’s new book reminds families that they are not alone. When Your Child Learns Differently is a compassionate guide that:

-Helps families navigate special education services from the inside out.
-Offers targeted advice to families of children with a wide range of disabilities and challenges.
-Shares valuable information about special education language, policy, procedures, and supports.
-Reminds families that they are the most important advocates in their child’s success plan.
-Draws on the author’s experiences as both a parent and special education teacher.
