Talk: Special Books by Special Kids

Special Books by Special Kids seeks to expand society's definition of normal by spreading empathy, understanding and acceptance for neurodiverse individuals. What started as an idea for a book series became a multi-media movement when special education teacher Chris Ulmer began sharing stories from his classroom. Now "Mr. Chris" shares how it all started, a few of the touching stories behind his many interactions, and what each of us can do to celebrate the neurodiversity all around us.

Chris Ulmer

Founder and teacher, Chris Ulmer, began Special Books by Special Kids (SBSK) with the desire to share the unique talents and incredible personalities of the students in his special education classroom with others. Without the backing of a publisher, what started as an idea for a book series became a multi-media movement.
