Chris Ulmer, lovingly referred to as “Mr. Chris”, began his career as a special education teacher in Jacksonville, Florida. After spending three years with the same students, he observed a disconnect between his pupils and society. The intelligence and humor displayed by his students was not typically appreciated by those without special needs experience.
For this reason, Mr. Chris started Special Books by Special Kids, a multi media non-profit that is now spearheading a worldwide acceptance movement. Today, Chris dedicates his time to traveling around the world and teaching others about neurodiversity by performing speaking engagements and interviewing neurodiverse individuals to be featured on SBSK.
Mr. Chris will undoubtedly provide an amazing opportunity for parents, educators, therapists, social workers, nurses and everyone in between. We will discuss the methodologies used to create a positive bond with neurodiverse individuals, enabling that respective person to meet their full potential.
