Author Avril Webster created the Off We Go! series to help her son with an intellectual disability practice and visualize typical everyday and once-in-awhile outings to alleviate anxiety about what’s going to happen during these activities. Brightly illustrated in an uncluttered cartoon style, and featuring simple text vetted by a speech language pathologist, these stories tell and show kids what to expect.

Avril Webster: Books have had a big impact on our lives, right from the get go. I remember when [my son], Stephen, was a small baby and we had endless days and nights in hospital, I read to him. Book after book, I think hearing my voice soothed him and it helped us create that special intimate time, despite being in a hospital environment. And reading those books helped me cope too – helped to pass the time, distracted me and helped me feel like a ‘normal’ Mom. Stephen still loves many of those books!
