The Cookbook for Children with Special Needs

Learning a Life Skill with Fun, Tasty, Healthy Recipes

Jessica Kingsley Publishers

Simple, step-by-step instructions accompanied by fun illustrations, guide children through three levels of cooking, starting with fundamental basics of food preparation and building up to more complex recipes. The book starts with a basic illustrated guide to where food comes from, why it is important to have a balanced diet, the different food groups, and why cooking is a great skill to master. Health and safety skills are taught as an essential part of the cooking activity and healthy eating habits are reinforced throughout.

She runs a baseball league and dance group and is an advocate for children with special needs. Deborah has a son on the autism spectrum, a daughter with Down syndrome, and young twins, and enjoys finding solutions and techniques to support her children's development. She and her family live in Israel.
