Living with a Special Need: Physical Challenges

This series educates young readers about a variety of special needs their peers live with every day. There are many kinds of physical challenges. Some of these are the result of an injury, while other challenges are caused by a condition with which the person was born. Many of these conditions will last forever, and some will get worse as the individual gets older. When fourteen-year-old Samantha discovers that her new neighbor, Jenny, has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair, Samantha’s not sure what to expect. Through her growing friendship with Jenny, though, Samantha meets other kids with physical challenges. For ages 12 and up.
