New Titles

The Boys’ Guide to Growing Up, and The Girls’ Guide to Growing Up, both by Terri Couwenhoven
These two books are written for adolescents with intellectual disabilities experiencing puberty. These books use succinct and straightforward language to address the physical and emotional changes of the “tween and teen” years. They are particularly strong on developing an understanding of public and private behaviours. Black and white illustrations. 


Both titles are also available in Kindle editions.
