Description: Who am I? This is a question that most people ask themselves. Forstudents with special needs, answering this question enhances theirself-esteem and helps them understand that their special need is not theonly thing that defines them. One way to do this is to bring thedifferent parts of their life together in the concrete form of a Mebook. This book can be used for many purposes. It can be a self-definingand self-discovery activity, a social story of how to talk aboutthemselves and answer questions, and/ or a book that can shared withothers to facilitate relationships. No matter how it is used, or whereit is used, it will help to boost their self-esteem as they will have aphysical reminder that can identify their strengths and accomplishmentswhile explaining their challenges.
