I Love My Bear by Debra Toymil
Children with cognitive impairments are unable to learn through play or to utilize books in the same way that typical children are able to.
After many years of struggling to find materials that are at an appropriate level for teaching and parenting children with severe disabilities (including cognitive, visual, and neurological), Author Debra Toymil decided to create her own materials to promote growth and learning.
I Love My Bear is appropriate for this population of children with special needs, as these children readily respond to its rhyming, tactile, and kinesthetic components

About The Author: Author Debra Toymil has a Master’s Degree in Special Education from PACE University, and is certified as a Teacher of the Blind and Visually Impaired. She has worked with children with multiple disabilities at the Lavelle School for the Blind, Bronx, NY for over 25 years.
Debra has two children, one of whom had a disability named Lowe’s Syndrome. This syndrome affects the eyes, brain and kidneys. Raising their son with this syndrome inspired her to further her education and become a special education teacher.
Debra has used this book in her classroom of students with visual impairments and with multiple disabilities. Her colleagues, including teachers, occupational and speech therapists, have “borrowed” her book to use while working with their students. Even her most challenging students (those with limited expressive and receptive language skills) are able to comprehend and follow along with this book.
