Recommended Reading: Books by Authors with Learning Disabilities

One of my favorite things about group speech therapy sessions is that they allow children to see that they aren't alone. Sitting along side peers who are working on similar goals helps build a child's self-confidence. For this same reason, encouraging children to read literature that was written by authors who struggled in school can be very inspiring.
The National Center for Learning Disabilities recently complied a list of books written by individuals with LD. The list is divided into three sections: books for children, books for tweens and young teenagers and books for older teenagers/adults. Check out the complete article here.

Do you know of a book that was written by an author with special needs? Please share it with us and our readers in the comments below.
