Emily’s sister is different from other children she knows. She seems to struggle with things most of us just do naturally.
In this delightfully illustrated story, based upon real family experiences, Emily discovers how to understand and help her sister live a happier life.
This story, written by the parent of a child with Dyspraxia and Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD),paves the way for parents, teachers and medical professionals to discuss these specific learning difficulties with children (aged around 7-9).
Unlike most other books on the subject, this book has been written from a child’s perspective: enabling young people to ask questions of the story in a non-threatening way and encouraging them to discover how it relates to them.
This book can be shared with children having special needs, their family, or their classmates.
As with all of its books, the publisher – Your Stories Matter – aims to help people know they are not alone with what makes them different. If a young person or adult can relate to a story, it gives them hope and encourages them to share their concerns. The publisher aims to provide free teaching resources for all of its books that can be used in schools, to help improve understanding and celebrate differences.
