Ableism: Deal With It
And appreciate everyone's abilities
illustrated by Kay Nau
Deal With It: Ableism offers self quizzes, real life scenarios, myths and Q&As which identify ableism and ableist behaviour and provides strategies to deal with it.
This reader-directed exploration of ableism is both informative and empowering. Author Kimberley Maich uses her experience as a special education specialist, certified teacher, registered psychologist and a board-certified behaviour analyst to present a realistic and accurate book for young readers.
Self-assessment quizzes, real life scenarios, myths and Q&As all contribute to understanding ableism and ableist behaviour. Deal with it: Ableism works to address difficult topics children often struggle with in an accessible and engaging way. The book offers strategies for change for young readers.
On every page the text is accompanied by graphic novel-style illustrations that depict characters often not included in illustrated books. Illustrator Kay Nau draws on their experience as a disabled and neurodivergent artist to bring authenticity and life to the characters and scenarios discussed within the book.
