I Am Not Weird!

Dear Friends,

Most of you already know that at the beginning of the school year one of Haley’s classmates called her weird. That event set off a spark and Haley with the help of Raye Lynn decided to write a book about Cerebral Palsy and explain what it is and how she is not weird. The book turned out to be wonderful so we decided to publish it.

The book is being published as an 8.5×8.5 hard cover.

The time has arrived and the publisher is ready to print. We are taking initial pre-orders for the book.

If you are interested in pre-ordering your copy the cost is $19.95. This is $5.00 off the cover price. We will be donating 10% of the proceeds of the sales of the book to the ALC. The (ALC) Adaptive Learning Center was instrumental in helping Haley achieve her current abilities and confidence and we love the program.

Haley, a first grader, never thought of herself as different because she has cerebral palsy. When a new classmate told her she was weird because she wore braces and walked funny, Haley was upset. She did not know what to do or what to say as a response. With help from her parents and grandmother Haley decided to write a book explaining that she was not weird-cerebral palsy is not weird. Haley tells what cerebral palsy means and tells all that she does, just like everyone else. Haley brought her book to school and it was read to the class to help the children understand. Haley is proud of herself and hopes her book will help others to understand about cerebral palsy

Haley is an incredible girl who’s just like anyone else except she walks differently. Haley’s writing guide is RayeRaye, her grandmother, the director of a pre-school where she helped to facilitate a model inclusionary pre-school in Atlanta. Haley lives in Marietta, Georgia with her parents and sister and brother.

  1. My girls go to the same school as Haley (one in 2nd and one in 3rd) and they came home today just raving about Haily so I had to set off on a hunt for her book. Congrats to her for creating such an amazing book! I'm passing this on to all my friends and colleagues and when I graduate from chiropractic school in about a year and a half, I hope to have Haily's book sitting out in the lobby for all the other kids to read. Great job Haley!!!

  2. That is a terrific thing. I have a cousin with Cerebreal Palsy. He has pretty sever speech and motor skills problems, yet his mind works just like a normal kid. He is the sweetest kid in the world and it breaks my heart to think people make fun of him. Blessings to you and your daughter, hoping the book is a great help and blessing to many people.
