The Self-Help Guide for Special Kids and their Parents, Paperback / softback Book

The Self-Help Guide for Special Kids and their Parents Paperback / softback


James Williams is an SP or special person - he was diagnosed with autism during early childhood.

His mother, Joan Matthews, is an NP or normal person.

As James grew up, his different perception of the world and the lack of understanding from NPs created problems.

Together, he and his mother met the challenges with ingenuity and humour.

One day, while taking a walk, James and Joan decided to write a book of their practical solutions.

The Self-Help Guide for Special Kids is that book. Covering everything from eye sensitivity, to knowing how far away to stand from other people, to being polite when someone is crying, James and Joan's book describes the problems that an SP may face, and the solutions which they have found to work successfully.

Pervaded by their caustic humour and common sense, The Self-Help Guide for Special Kids will be invaluable to other SPs and their families both as a source of advice and a fresh and witty account of how it feels to be an SP.
