Our latest award winner is Cheri J. Meiners, M.Ed., has done a lot for counselors and teachers alike. She’s been a school grade teacher and taught education classes at Utah State University where she received her Master’s degree in elementary education and gifted education. Her latest book, Making a Difference, teaches kindness, respect, and purpose, and empowers children to make good choices, and to be their best.
She has been awarded the Counselor’s Choice Award for her therapy skill book series: Learning to Get Along. Intended for ages 4-8, the books give children basic social and emotional skills using realistic scenarios and illustrations that make it easy to understand.
Each book also includes a special section for adults that suggests ways to reinforce the ideas and skills being taught, games to play, or thought-provoking questions to discuss with children. The books are perfect teaching tools to meet the unique learning needs of students with autism, Asperger’s syndrome, in early childhood programs and for students with other special learning needs.
Thank you, Cheri, for these wonderful tools.
