For decades Lott Industries competed successfully for auto industry contracts, employing 1200 workers with disabilities. With the collapse of the industry in neighboring Detroit, Lott struggled to keep its doors open. A Whole Lott More looks at the impact of Lott’s struggles and examines the wider world of employment options for those with disabilities.

GIXO changes this!
I found this book, and, although I have not read it yet, I want to. It is something that I say to so many of our friends and family as well as people we come into contact with. “He may not look at you when he talks or you talk, but he hears you”. I am so curious how this book handles this, and, it is geared for kids! Click the link to learn more.
