I recently assessed children who really needed some help in understanding their difficulties in reading and writing. This book presents a number of related issues associated with reading and writing difficulties such as feelings, needing to practise and hidden talents. This book would support discussion about self-identity, strengths, uniqueness and supportive interventions such as the need to persevere through difficulties.
This book would serve well as part of specific recommendations following an assessment for the child, family and teacher. It could also be used as part of individual session when a child needs support in understanding oneself and initiate the development of discourses around finding one’s talents.
