The Adventures of Willy Wilmer and His Cool Wheelchair
Mr. Joe A. Rivas, M.S.
This a set of stories written to raise awareness about children with disabilities. My stories will be about children's ability to develop relationships with other kids in the new town of Curb-cut-ville. Willy, the child with a disability, will be the main character throughout the series. Willy, and his dog Aspen, embark on many journies in the town of Curb-cut-ville. These stories provide children from age 7 and up, of all cultures, and conditions unique perspectives about issues related to multiple disabilities/illnesses. The main focus of my stories will be to encourage readers to become aware of multiple conditions in positive situations. My Willy stories will be story-driven to increase awareness about many types of impairments with less focus on labels and greater emphasis on strengths, talents, and abilities. These stories will include emphasis on community/school inclusion, access integration, and positive behavoral supports in light-hearted situations with humorous dialog between characters. I am hoping to get these stories illustrated and published in the future. My readers can read these stories by clicking on the link below.
