This guide is based on my experiences volunteering and working with people with special needs since 1995, and having my own disabilities since 2003. I began practicing mindfulness at that time as a way of coping and found it immensely helpful. I also discovered unique challenges to meditation practices, and few available resources.
Many thanks to all those who have supported and encouraged me on this path. A big thanks to Devin for encouraging me to write this, and to Erik, Jan, Sujata, Sue Z, Kathleen, Dainei and Maddy for feedback in the writing process.
