The second was a Faculty Book Club with the memoir Funny, You Don't Look Autistic by Michael McCreary. Judson High School librarian, Mariya Ortiz, also collaborated with ESC Region 20's Dana Frankland, Consultant for Low-Incidence Disabilities, Assistive Technology, and Related Services, and Janet Enriquez, the Consultant for Autism, to provide a book study aimed at increasing teachers' understanding of life on the Autism Spectrum Disorder continuum, how this diagnosis affects families, and how educators can better align practices to help all students be successful.

We'll be discussing Unspeakable Things by Jess Lourey, an adult thriller set in the 1980s and told from the perspective of a 13-year old trying to reconcile the innocence of childhood with the reality of a serial child kidnapper in this idyllic small town where nothing will ever be the same again.
