Ok, If you like to be called "special" then get the book "Someone Special Like Me."  But if you don't like being called "special," then try the book "Don't Call Me Special."  Matthew says he is special and you can call him special.. just don't call him late for supper.. yea, he said that.

Now for the parent of children with special needs I recommend the Child with Special Needs and More than a Mom.  I have not read either but I have heard they are great books I would love to get one of these, or both for christmas.

This sourcebook has been created for parents who have decided to make education and Internet-based research an integral part of the treatment process. Although it gives information useful to doctors, caregivers and other health professionals, it also tells parents where and how to look for information covering virtually all topics related to microcephaly, from the essentials to the most advanced areas of research. The title of this book includes the word official. This reflects the fact that the sourcebook draws from public, academic, government, and peer-reviewed research.
