News - 2010 Dolly Gray Winners


The 2010 Dolly Gray Awards for Children's Literature in Developmental Disabilities, were awarded to The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Down, and Understanding Samand Asperger's Syndrome by Clarabelle van Niekerk and Liezl Venter.

The Dolly Gray Award for Children's Literature in Developmental Disabilities was initiated in 2000 to recognize authors, illustrators, and publishers of high quality fictional children's books that appropriately portray individuals with developmental disabilities.

The award is a collaborative work by members of the Division on Autism and Developmental Disabilities (DADD) of the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) and Special Needs Project (a distributor of books related to disability issues). Every even year, an award is presented to an author and illustrator (if appropriate) of a children's picture book and/or a juvenile/young adult chapter book that includes appropriate portrayals of individuals with developmental disabilities.
