Special Friends is a story about a girl with intellectual disabilities who is excluded from other children in her class. She explains how this occurs with many children with intellectual disabilities. People make fun of them, and some are scared of them. She then meets a new girl in her regular class in school, and she plays with her and treats her like a "normal" classmate. Others then see how she and her friends in her specialized class aren't scary. This story was written for children to understand intellectual disabilities so that they are not afraid of persons with disabilities.
