Abstract or Summary
  • This project aimed to address the topic of children with disabilities through a well-researched children’s book. Dancing with my friend Maddie is a children’s book that focuses on a friendship between Claire, a typically developing first grader, and Maddie, a first grader with Down syndrome. Research has shown that addressing the topic of children with disabilities at a younger age can help increase the feelings of acceptance. This book’s target age group is five to seven year olds. The project aims to teach others to accept everyone’s differences. The project hopes to have children see themselves in the characters in the book. The children’s book portrays a lasting friendship and expresses the love we have for each other despite and because of our differences. The projects goal is to address the topic of children with disabilities in a way that allows for discussion and questions as well as allows for a story to be told where everyone can relate to a character in the book. This document contains the research associated with the book, character development, content, and future goals of the project as well as the book itself.
