The Twitter names next to each link belong to the authors, publications, and the people who bring them to my attention.

After my wife died from ALS in 2009 I started the blog and used Twitter to help promote it. I’m using this opportunity to say thanks to my 6000+ followers who help me every day share the free resources and book summaries I find and produce for the parents and educators I serve. If you don’t follow me yet @DrDougGreen please consider doing so and sharing this site with your network. Thanks so much.
