Right Under My Nose

Right Under My Nose was created to help parents and caregivers explain spina bifida to young children. The book is designed as three inter-related sections: a story, activity pages for children to complete and tips for parents and caregivers. Together, they enhance discussion of key challenges facing children with spina bifida. In the story, a young child with spina bifida searches for something special to share at circle time and discovers children with disabilities can successfully self-advocate. The activity pages provide natural opportunities to open and guide discussions that might not otherwise happen. Additionally, the tips pages offer child-friendly and age-appropriate answers to questions children with spina bifida ask frequently, as well as activity suggestions to enrich and empower their lives.
