Présentation de l'éditeur
This is based on a true story. As a paraprofessional several years ago working on my teaching degree, I was given the most wonderful assignment to assist a second grade student who had the challenge of selective mutism. My educational background includes communication disorders which helped me look for keys to unlock Hannah’s social speech. Her new pink winter coat was just that key I was looking for. I whispered words of encouragement to Hannah’s classmates when they wanted to ask her about her coat. The rest, as they say, is history.
I dedicate this book to mothers who keep trying, students who face challenges so bravely, teachers who, without blinking an eye, hold a furry coat to stand in a photo, knowing how much it may mean to the parents…day in and day out.
