A Conversation with Erin Garcia
On this episode of the Classroom Matters podcast I will be sitting down with Erin Garcia author of the book “The Case of Sensational Stims.”
Erin is on a mission to make the world more inclusive and as the parent of an autistic child she can share misunderstandings and mistakes she encountered to help others navigate these unchartered waters. Erin has a gift of speaking the truth without outraging those who will need to change their beliefs and behaviors. She has written two books including Tiger Livey and her most recent work, The Case of Sensational Stims, which celebrates neurodiversity and shows how to assist those with unique sensory needs.
During this conversation we will be discussing the challenges our public-school systems face when assisting students and parents presented with a diagnosis of autism.

In 2012, an Oregon mother opened a five dollar package of Halloween decorations and an SOS letter, handwritten in broken English, fell out. The letter was written by a mild-mannered Chinese engineer turned political prisoner, forced into grueling labor for a petty offense. He was imprisoned alongside criminals, civil rights activists, and tens of thousands of others the Chinese government had decided to “reeducate.” In Made in China, investigative journalist Amelia Pang reveals is a closely guarded network of forced labor camps that power the rapid pace of American consumerism. Pang shows us the true cost of America’s cheap goods and shares what is ultimately a call to action—urging us to ask more questions and demand more answers from the companies we patronize.
The Children’s Blizzard, from bestselling author Melanie Benjamin comes a story of courage on the prairie. Inspired by oral histories of survivors, this is the story of a devastating storm that struck the Great Plains in 1888, taking the lives of hundreds of immigrant homesteaders, especially schoolchildren in The Children’s Blizzard. This is a story of love taking root in the hard prairie ground, and of families being torn asunder by a ferocious storm that is little remembered today, because so many of its victims were immigrants to this country.
