We have created a children’s book that allows children and youth to talk about their own neurological or psychological differences, things such as ADHD, anxiety, autism, or PTSD. The book’s tone is positive, communicating that minds being different is ok, even good for ourselves and our communities.

The book is full of statements in the youth’s own words. Ex. “My mind can sometimes get stuck on things. It’s great when I get stuck on things I LOVE!”

The book’s intended audience will be children under the age of 8, as well as their educators and caregivers. Profits from sales will allow schools and non-profits to receive books at no cost.

All Kinds of Minds can be purchased here!  $20 for the soft cover and $30 for the hardcover. All of the proceeds are being donated to the Board of Education. Copies of these books will be purchased for school libraries.

About Inspire

At Inspire Community Outreach, we support youth and families with unique challenges and celebrate strengths. We provide evidence informed, culturally safe, family-centered education and programming, designed to meet the needs of those living with mental health issues or neurological/cognitive differences.

Education. Inclusion. Compassion.

Inspire’s support is created by the community; from children who grew up with differences, families that include children with differences, and evidence from a clinical perspective.

Our mission at Inspire Community Outreach Inc. is to support the mental health of children, youth, and families. Our vision is the development of a community that supports children, youth and families to recognize and celebrate their strengths and potential, and that puts them in touch with resources that benefit their overall well being.
