“This Is Me” Books

“This Is Me” is a children book series conceived and produced by SEP. The books tell the stories of three children, focusing on their abilities, experiences, social interactions and dreams: Peter, six years old, living with cerebral palsy; Gloria, seven years old, living with Down syndrome; and Samuel, seven years old, living with autism.

The “This Is Me” books aim at gaining a better understanding of children with disabilities and their potential among their peers. The easy-to-read books are appropriate for children for use in schools and kindergartens to support inclusion from an early age, hence increasing social interaction and participation of learners with special needs in mainstream education.

SEP has submitted the three “This Is Me” books to KICD (Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development) in order to obtain its approval for a large scale distribution in Kenyan regular schools.
