Special Books by Special Kids

Special Books by Special Kids (SBSK) shares the stories of "people in the disability/neurodiversity community." In doing so, the project "seeks to normalize the diversity of the human condition." Host Chris Ulmer first conceptualized the series when he was a teacher for students with disabilities and neurodiversities. Originally, he planned to create a book that explored life from his students' perspectives. In 2016, this vision evolved into a registered nonprofit and a YouTube channel that today has garnered more than 2.5 million subscribers and more than 500 million views. The channel has even been featured by news outlets such as ABC and BBC. Videos are typically less than 30 minutes long and cover various topics, from motherhood and mental illness to the college experience from the perspective of a student with an intellectual disability. Under Playlists, viewers can narrow videos by series, including "Love and Disability" and "A Day in the Life." For more SBSK content, viewers can follow along on Twitter (@chrisulmer) and Instagram (specialbooksbyspecialkids).
