Special Needs

As both a mother and a teacher special needs are close to my heart. I have seen over the years, that when children understand they are more compassionate.

These books are ideal to read to children who have a friend, relative or classmate with additional needs. Even if the diagnosis is not the same these books are able to open up conversations about friendship, therapy and difficulties that many children encounter.

By teaching our children to interact positively with others that are different to themselves, we teach them to become better more empathetic people.
