This weeks adapted book tip comes from A is for Activist written and illustrated by Innosanto Nagara. This is an ABC board book that focuses on values of community, equality, and justice, as well as inspiring hope for the future!

On these 2 pages of the book we used glitter hot glue to bring attention to the letters “I” and “J”. We also used googly eyes and pipe cleaners to add texture to the important parts of the page. These adaptations can increase the childs participation in reading by having them reach out and touch the pages.

Here is another page from Please, Baby, Please written by Spike Lee and Tonya Lewis Lee. Illustrated by Kadir Nelson. On this page the main focus is the ball, so ball is underlined with glitter hot glue and we added tactile components in the form of pipe cleaners to the ball in the picture to draw a child’s attention to ball in multiple ways. We also added tactile glitter hot glue to the child’s friend’s outfit as the 2nd focus of the page is to share the ball with their friend. What a cute book ❤️

Today is "Woke Baby" written by Mahogany L. Browne and illustrated by Theodore Taylor III. This is a fun and sweet book reminding us that it's never too early to tell kids how powerful they are and how much their voice matters! We adapted this book by adding page fluffers, highlighting the text, highlighting the topic of the text in the illustration (like fists), and adding textural elements.

This week we are going to be highlighting some diverse children's books and how we adapted them! First up is "Dim Sum for Everyone" by Grace Lin. This book is beautifully and colorfully illustrated, exploring a traditional meal for a Chinese-American family. We adapted it by adding page fluffers to the corners to the pages easier to use, highlighting the text, and adding some sensory elements to the page. The little girl has the same sensory elements added to her hairclips on each page. Now it's easier for our kiddos with disabilities to engage with and participate in the reading process and a little more interesting tactilely for them to enjoy!

The Social Mobility Lab at Oregon State University is recruiting children with and without disabilities between the ages of 6-36 months to participate in a research study
titled Promoting Driving Practice of Early Powered Mobility Devices with a Mobile Robot.

The mobile robot is similar in form to a Roomba (a household mobile vacuum-cleaning robot), but in addition to the mobile base that Roombas typically have, our robot has built-in features resembling children's toys, such as blinking lights, sounds, and colorful moving parts. Early powered mobility devices include motorized wheelchairs, modified ride-on toy cars, and other similar forms of technology. You will be compensated for your time (up to a $40 Amazon Gift Card).

See attached flier for more information and to sign-up. Or, contact Dr. Sam Logan by phone 541-737-3437 or email at [email protected]
