Beauty Brite Disclosure

The new school year is right around the corner. Did you know that 1 in 5 children in the United States has learning disabilities and attention issues like Dyslexia and ADHD? Did you know that 31% of those with learning issues, such as dyslexia and ADHD, are more likely to be bullied than their peers?

In the year 2019, we are raising more awareness than ever when it comes to causes we believe in. Whether it be equal rights, a cleaner environment, or even education. I believe young minds are most open during their youth. Why not use this as an opportunity to raise awareness about Learning Disabilities too?

Quarto Kids SEN (Special Education Needs) Superpowers Series

Autism and Teaching Our Children What That Means

A while back I shared a children’s book called My Brother Otto, by Meg Raby. My Brother Otto focused on Autism and how just because one is different, it doesn’t mean being different is a bad thing. I really enjoyed how wholesome My Brother Otto is and how the story takes place through his younger sister Piper’s eyes. Children’s curiosity is honest and raw. My Brother Otto provided the perfect opportunity to discuss differences Autistic children may have but how these differences just make the unique. Check out more of what I had to say on My Brother Otto.

Quarto has provided a new opportunity to raise awareness and teach acceptance in your classroom or home. Quarto has released a new SEN superpowers series that targets awareness and educates young minds about those who may have Special Needs.

On July 16, 2019, Quarto Kids is releasing TWO books to accommodate their new SEN (Special Education Needs) Superpower series.

This new series is hitting shelves and making themselves available to teach topics to our youth that both raise awareness and acceptance on these learning disabilities or issues that can make learning hard for their peers.

The Map Challenge

SEN Superpowers The Map Challenge

The Map Challenge is written by Dr. Tracy Packiam Alloway and consists of 24 pages that focus on Sammy, how his Dyslexia affects him, and ultimately how his SEN superpower helps him save the day when his group loses their map on a camping trip.

I personally enjoyed how instead of focusing solely on the fact that Sammy’s Dyslexia makes him different, there is a focus on how his differences also give him strengths in other unsuspecting ways. Without Sammy, his group’s camping trip truly could have gone a different way.

The Classroom Mystery

SEN Superpowers The Classroom Mystery

The Classroom Mystery is also written by Dr. Tracy Packiam Alloway and is also 24 pages. The Classroom Mystery focuses on ADHD and how Izzy uses her SEN superpower to solve the classroom mystery. The mystery of who is stealing Snowball (the classroom pet bunnies) food! Again, Dr. Tracy Packiam Alloway does not disappoint. The focus on ADHD is phenomenal . She not only focuses on atopic to educate but also to advocate for awareness on this Learning Disability. She even focuses on that even with this diagnosis, one has superpowers in ways others do not.

SEN Superpowers The Classroom Mystery Book Pages

The SEN Superpowers series celebrates the positive traits associated with a range of common SEN (Special Education Needs) conditions, boosting the confidence and strength-awareness of children with those conditions, while also allowing for better understanding and positivity among their peers. Each book includes a page of discussion points about the story, a page of tips for how to boost abilities (inclusive for children with and without special educational needs), and, finally, a further page of notes for parents and teachers. The books feature a dyslexic-friendly font to encourage accessibility and inclusivity for all readers.

Quarto Kids

This is only the beginning of the SEN Superhero series. Two more stories will be added to the series in October 2019! I cannot wait to share those two adventures with you all as well.

You can order the SEN Superhero books at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books a Million, and Indiebound.

Which learning disabilities or issues do you hope to see a focus on?
