About Special Needs Book Review
Special Needs Book Review was originally a small part of the blog on KidCompanions.com. However, due to the interest and ever expanding nature of the KidCompanion blog, the reviews moved to their own website, www.specialneedsbookreview.com where book and CD reviews could be further organised into appropriate categories and groups, rated, giving opportunities for guest reviewers to submit their own reviews and also giving readers the opportunity to buy the books that are reviewed online.
One category we have is interviews with many of the authors. Along with author interviews we often have book giveaways.
With Special Needs Book Review now in its own domain, we aim to provide parents and educators of special needs children an invaluable resource where they can read, search, comment and buy books that can directly benefit them and others.

I taught middle-school for 30 years and though I am retired, I keep quite busy as my daughter’s business partner and special needs advocate. My daughter Pierrette designed the Sensory tool line, Kid Companions chewelry, sourced in USA/Canada, made in Canada and sold all over the world!
Special needs interests me as a mother and grandmother of children with Tourette’s and sensory perception issues. I have a blog for families and educators of Special Needs children. I write about new research or studies concerning SN kids, evaluations of resources or accessories for SN kids, tips and advice on parenting, and personal stories about the challenges our own family faced and now our grandchild faces. On our blog you will also find guest posts by experts on these same topics and posts written from the tweets during The Coffee Klatch Tweetchat sessions I monitor each Monday at 9 a.m. EST.
I grew up in a rural area in Nova Scotia, Canada. One of my favorite subjects, as a student and a teacher, has been Geography. Early in my career, during our two months summer break, my husband and I, with two other teachers, tented across Canada and back. When our kids were 10, 11 and 15 yrs, my husband and I camped a summer with our three children through half a dozen European countries. My husband and I have gone to Europe two more times since then. Chatting with the people in each place we visit is the best part of the trips.
