Lynn Parsons: Co-author of (dis) Abilities and the Gospel


In my last post about books I wanted to read in 2010, I told you about a book called (dis) Abilities and the Gospel. I introduced you to one of the co-authors, Danyelle Ferguson. I want you now to meet Lynn Parsons, the other co-author of this book coming out in June. I asked her to share some information about herself with those reading this blog. I have to say, I was quite impressed with Lynn's credentials and accomplishments. As a fellow educator, I know that there is a lot that I could learn from her. Here now is the mini-interview with Lynn Parsons.

" I'm married, mother of four, grandmother of two, educational diagnostician and writer. I entered the field of special education because two of my four children had special needs. I love to read and knit. I taught early morning seminary for seven years. I'm currently working as an educational diagnostician. I spent seven years teaching special ed at the high school level, and one at elementary.

I taught an after school social skills class to students with autism, and that class was featured in District Administration Magazine athttp://www.nxtbook.com/nxtbooks/pmg/da-palm0606/ ), and inEdutopia Magazine, found at http://www.edutopia.org/autism-handheld-technology#comment-63392, and documented in Encyclopedia Brittanica Online athttp://www.britannica.com/bps/additionalcontent/18/21777781/Palm-Handhelds-Touch-Students-with-Autism.

My article about using digital video in the social skills class was published by the Council for Exceptional Children, and I have a book coming out in June about dealing with disabilities at church. It's called(dis) Abilities and the Gospel, and my coauthor has a son with Autism. We wrote the book through the Internet--we have not yet met!
My Blog is at lynndeniseparsons.blogspot.com (there's a contest there until Monday), and my web page has loads of information for teachers, parents, and diagnosticians (lynndparsons.com)."

I want to thank Lynn for introducing herself. I look forward to reading (dis) Abilities in the Gospel. If you have any questions for Lynn, you can leave them here or contact her at her blog or website.
