9. 105 Activities for Your Child With Autism and Special Needs: Enable them to Thrive, Interact, Develop and Play
Author: by Susan Jules
The adoption of the Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities (CPRD) by the United Nations in 2006 is the first comprehensive and binding treaty on the rights of people with disabilities. It establishes the right of people with disabilities to equality, dignity, autonomy, full participation, as well as the right to live in the community, and the right to supported decision-making and inclusive education.
Prior to the CRPD, international law had provided only limited protections to people with disabilities. This book analyses the development of disability rights as an international human rights movement. Focusing on the United States and countries in Asia, Africa, the Middle East the book examines the status of people with disabilities under international law prior to the adoption of the CPRD, and follows the development of human rights protections through the convention’s drafting process.
Arlene Kanter argues that by including both new applications and entirely new approaches to human rights treaty enforcement, the CRPD is significant not only to people with disabilities but also to the general development of international human rights, by offering new human rights protections for all people.

12. Administering the California Special Needs Trust: A Guide for Trustees and Those Who Advise Them
Author: by Kevin Urbatsch
Bowker (January 8, 2020)
Administering a special needs trust (SNT) is a very important job, which often has a profound impact on the life of persons with disabilities. In most cases, the SNT trustee is providing the beneficiary goods and services that enhances their quality of life.
In some cases, the SNT trustee may be the only person looking to the beneficiary’s welfare. Thus, the role of SNT trustee is often a more substantial role than in many other types of trusteeships. The great SNT trustee is a solid financial manager, accountant, record keeper, legal counselor, public benefits advisor, social worker, housing coordinator, civil rights advocate, guardian, and life coach.
Moreover, the world of public benefits for the disabled is a complex one that requires careful study. It is very easy to mess up these rules and using common sense will generally lead to a loss of public benefits and potential liability for an SNT trustee.
This is why authors Kevin Urbatsch and Michele Fuller published their book titled Administering the California Special Needs Trust. Kevin and Michele recruited several of their professional colleagues to assist in preparing this Third Edition of the book including Jessica Farinas, Robert Nuddleman, Herb Thomas, Courtney Kosnik, Scott MacDonald, and Daniel Cutter.

14. Let's Talk: A Conversational Skills Workbook for Children with Autism & Special Needs
Author: by Susan Jules
Children with Autism and Special Needs find navigating the dangerous minefield of Social Skills and Conversations terrifying, confusing and frustrating. While we engage in conversations seamlessly responding when someone is talking to us or using appropriate body language when engaging in small talk, children with Autism and Special Needs find keeping track of social rules quite overwhelming.
These kids don’t pick up these rules naturally. In fact, people consider children with Autism reluctant to engage with others. But in reality, lack of socialization is often the outcome of their insufficient social and communicational skills, rather than lack of interest.
Difficulties in initiating and maintaining conversations often prohibit these children from developing friendships and hinder their performance in school. So it is extremely important that they need to be taught these social skills. The content of this Conversational Skills Workbook is not only educative but fun and engaging.

16. Nothing About Us Without Us: Disability Oppression and Empowerment
Author: by James I. Charlton
James Charlton has produced a ringing indictment of disability oppression, which, he says, is rooted in degradation, dependency, and powerlessness and is experienced in some form by five hundred million persons throughout the world who have physical, sensory, cognitive, or developmental disabilities.
Nothing About Us Without Us is the first book in the literature on disability to provide a theoretical overview of disability oppression that shows its similarities to, and differences from, racism, sexism, and colonialism. Charlton’s analysis is illuminated by interviews he conducted over a ten-year period with disability rights activists throughout the Third World, Europe, and the United States.
Charlton finds an antidote for dependency and powerlessness in the resistance to disability oppression that is emerging worldwide. His interviews contain striking stories of self-reliance and empowerment evoking the new consciousness of disability rights activists. As a latecomer among the world’s liberation movements, the disability rights movement will gain visibility and momentum from Charlton’s elucidation of its history and its political philosophy of self-determination, which is captured in the title of his book.
