Daisy Has Autism – Aaron J. Wright
Daisy Has Autism tells the story of one family’s harrowing experience with public special education, and captures the story universally experienced by millions of special needs families. In sleepy Davis, California, the Russell family remarkably find themselves first navigating the complexities of autism with their dog and then with their daughter. While seeking to enroll their daughter in special education at their local public school, the Russells quickly find themselves at odds with a school district determined to escape its responsibilities. What they experience, and how they prevail, will resonate with every parent who has struggled to have their special needs child appropriately served.
Aaron J. Wright is the product of a public education and a member of a family deeply entrenched in public education. He is a Nurse Practitioner and the parent of two children, one with autism. Professionally he has worked with severely injured adults and children for nearly two decades. Outside of work, he has been a staunch advocate for disabled students in public education and youth sports. He firmly believes in the benefits of a public education and access. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his family and three distinctly different dogs.

10 Seconds That Changed My Life – Iain M. MacLeod
Thursday, June 15, 2017, will be embedded in my memory forever. I greeted the bright summer day eager to face the world, and ended the day lying in the Intensive Care unit of a hospital in Aberdeen, Scotland, with a ventilating tube down my throat. Billions of people get out of bed every day without any problem, and that had been true for me, despite being a wheelchair user with Cerebral Palsy since the age of three. But when I got out of bed that fateful morning, everything went horribly wrong.
Told as a first-person account interspersed with original poetry, 10 Seconds That Changed My Life charts the various stages of Iain MacLeod’s hospital experience and personal journey through joy and sorrow, frustration and elation, and the reality of coming home to a new normal. By writing and publishing this book, he hopes to encourage those with special needs to never give up, and to always remember that they are able, not disabled, and have unique abilities to share with the world.
