Ghost Boy Book

If you were not able to be at the Special Education Department meeting during Friday's inservice, I have a book waiting to be delivered to you. It is about a man named Martin Pistorious. It is a great book that reminds us to look beyond the label and into the potential of the children we see. His website: http://www.martinpistorius.com/ has more information about his story in addition to some AAC articles. I've attached the video below if you would like to see it again.
