The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice and Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans are helping promote a good cause! In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, author Carmela Fazio-Florio opened up about her special needs books.
“The reason why I decided to write these books is because I’m a special education teacher,” Fazio-Florio told Radar. “My daughter has special needs. She was diagnosed with ADHD. I saw the need for books to explain to children about disabilities because my 9-year-old son had a lot of questions. His friends and her friends also had questions.”
“I’ve been going around and reading the books to special education kids,” Fazio-Florio said. “The one thing at the end they learned is we can all play together. I’m hoping to get it in all schools.”
Fazio-Florio is currently working on a third book.
“I want to hit all the different disabilities,” she said. “Deaf, blind, children in wheelchairs. I want to show that it’s okay to be different.”
To help promote the books, Fazio-Florio has teamed up with Giudice, Evans and RHONJ star Danielle Staub.
