Sean McElwee was successfully fully included in elementary school with all of the supports, accommodations and modifications he needed to succeed. This book introduced him to all of the first grade classes, and facilitated his acceptance. A great book for introducing Down syndrome to peers, siblings and children who have Down syndrome by pointing out that they are just like Sean. Many photos and short sentences make this a children’s book that will be read over and over again. At the end there is a letter to parents of typical children who may have a child with Down syndrome included in their child’s classroom, explaining how to talk to their children and even encouraging them to invite the child with Down syndrome for a play date or to a birthday party. He was included in all aspects of his school, learned to read, excelled in math, performed in talent shows and most of all made many friends. Sean continued his education and graduated from high school at 17 years old. You can read about his education experiences in Who’s The Slow Learner? A Chronicle of Inclusion and Exclusion.
