"Out of My Mind"

Slightly outside the realm of my typical posts but I wanted to pass along an excellent book for those who love, know, work with, or simply want to better understand a non-verbal child.  The book is "Out of My Mind" by Sharon Draper.  It is a fictional story about a non-verbal child who has severe cerebral palsy.  Though it is a fictional book there are many children in the same situation that are not fictional.  They know so much more than they can communicate.  It truly has changed some of the ways I interact with our little guy.  It may be one of the best awareness tools that I've ever seen.  Thank you Sharon Draper!!
