Ambassador WEB-nesday Featuring Brett Bigham, creator of Ability Guidebooks
Our next HundrED Ambassador webinar will be on Wednesday, May 16, 2018 at 16:00 (UTC). Join Brett Bigham, creator of Ability Guidebooks and hear about his passions and work.
Who is Brett Bigham?
Brett Bigham is the creator behind Ability Guidebooks. He is a special education teacher from Portland, Oregon. He is also the 2014 Oregon State Teacher of the Year and has been honored to be named an NEA Global Fellow twice.
The Ability Guidebooks are step-by-step guides that teach people with autism how to visit places in the community. The first Ability Guidebook he wrote, "I Am Going To Ride The Portland Tram UP!", was designed to help his own students deal with their anxiety about riding the Portland Aerial Tram. Since those first books, he has created over 140 books for 36 countries and they are now available in six languages!
This year he was honored to be invited to Bangladesh to train and observe some of the teachers that work with children with special needs. Only a few schools in Bangladesh accept children who need special instruction and it was incredible to be able to share the best practice he has learned in his years as a teacher.
In his webinar, Brett will share his journey as a special needs teacher, as well his projects and passions.
