Designed for young children ages 3-5 with autism and/or intellectual delays, The Holidays of the Year is an nine page adapted book (ten with cover) that comes in a printable .pdf file. This book would be a nice introduction to all the holidays that could be celebrated in a year.
Once printed, I suggest you laminate the individual pages for reading. I've also included matching pieces for vocabulary words I have chosen to highlight in the text. This book focuses on the fringe words: New Year's Eve, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Fourth of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, holidays. More specific instructions are included for creating your adapted book to last several school years.

Adapted books would also be good resources for any young learner, an early childhood special education classroom, simple literacy or math centers for preschool and prekindergarten classrooms and home schoolers who are teaching students with unique abilities. Because the principles of teaching vocabulary are very similar for both language delayed children with special needs and new English learners, my books are also an excellent resource for an ELL/ELD/EFL classroom for young children.
