Sally Pla has written two incredible middle grade novels and a PB starring neuroatypical kids. She and Merriam Saunders started A NOVEL MIND to discuss the intersection of neurodiversity and kidlit. The project includes a Facebook Group , and an amazing database of over 600 children's books that showcase neurobiological differences and/or mental health challenges. It's searchable by title, age range, author, and issue (ADHD, autism, sensory processing, anxiety, etc). 

 

As an adult with ADHD and sensory processing challenges who is also writing in this space, I am excited to be helping them maintain this incredible resource and encourage anyone interested to join the A Novel Mind community.
