"Dov's Story" and video interview now on Nick News website!!!

Greetings!
​There is a wonderful piece on the Nick News website called “Dov’s Story” and it includes a video interview with Dov who uses his LightWriter to answer questions! Linda Ellerbee really came through when I told her how disappointed Dov was about not being included in the Nick News special last spring.

​You can read the story and see the video here: ​Click Here

​Please write to Linda (linda@ldp.com) and let her know how you liked the story and that you’d love to see more stories about nonverbal kids who have autism and can tell their own stories!

​Best wishes to all, -Portia
