Book Summary

A picture book to help children understand dyspraxia. Narrated by a friend, the book talks about how dyspraxia affects Josh at school and at home. Dyspraxia is a common condition that affects a child’s coordination as well as organization and processing. This simple book explains dyspraxia, using a child narrative. While it explains the difficulties encountered by a dyspraxic child it recognizes that all children with dyspraxia are different and is written in a positive narrative. This is an ideal book for parents or teachers to use to explain what dyspraxia is and how it affects a classmate, friend or family member. The author has a son with dyspraxia and it was written in consultation with a number of other parents of dyspraxic children.
