Adrienne and Sharon

Adrienne and Sharon met at a Grand Valley State University exercise class for people with Parkinson's Disease. 

Parkinson's Disease is a common neurodegenerative disorder. More than one million Americans are currently living with Parkinson's. Symptoms of Parkinson's include tremors, difficulty walking, searching for words and a flat affect. Some of these symptoms can be scary for young children. This website catalogues various books written about Parkinson's for young readers.  If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with PD, the books featured here may be helpful. This website was designed to teach young children why their grandparents might be exhibiting some of the more common Parkinson's symptoms like flat affect (limited smiling) and tremors.
