Moving is traumatic for all children. The fear of having to make new friends combines with the grief of being separated from old ones. A move’s difficulty is compounded when the child has a special need or is viewed as being different. When Anthony moved into his grandfather’s house, he met the neighbor, Mr. Holt, who encouraged and advised Anthony. Everyone needs a supportive friend. Abigail Griebelbauer shines a light on the abilities of those often called disabled. In A Is for Anthony Not ADHD (The Empower Empathy Early Series) Abigail teaches the reader that people may have a disorder but should never be defined by that disorder. I refuse to use the word disabled. Instead, I remind people that those with special needs are differently abled. My son is on the Spectrum. Like Anthony, he can do many things, but he just does them differently.
Anthony is differently abled but learns to overcome his fears. As a result, he is accepted by those around him. Anthony is encouraged by his elderly neighbor, showing that everyone needs a friend to cheer them on. In A Is for Anthony Not ADHD, Abigail Griebelbauer shows that Anthony can concentrate with help. His aide is known as a fidget. Abigail wrote this book to help others understand the struggles and victories of differently abled children (and adults). Children often identify with characters in a book. This book allows them to explore what it would be like to be differently abled and learn compassion and understanding as a result. Read this book with or to your children and help them learn how important it is to be inclusive.
