"As an author of a book for and about neurodivergent readers, I would love to discuss how parents can help their child go from struggling to striving readers! I have also worked as a paraeducator, and I am a parent of neurodivergent adult children. I live and work all things neurodiversity!" --Nancy Roop

Available for podcast and blogpost interviews.
Contact for scheduling or more information.


Nancy Roop promotes neurodiversity and inclusion by publishing developmental books and speaking at educational conferences—or to anyone, anywhere. Her early chapter books have embedded comprehension strategies, so readers learn how to extract meaning from books. These developmental books look like traditional books, but are sensory-friendly, model social connections, and support self-regulation.
