I like the book and it is packed with relevant and useful understandings that can be taken into an educational psychologist's practice when working with schools.
This is also a positive, practical and essentially hopeful book. I found the chapter on practical approaches to supporting learning to be useful. Each learning challenge is described in terms of 'problem, strengths,solutions,generalisation, goal and resources'. I imagine that many parents will find the chapter on 'the importance of the family' a real tonic. It is realistic about the challenges families face, but also provides some heartening, straightforward advice. I felt quite inspired and emotional while reading this book. It is hopeful and deep. It is hopeful and deep. It remined me of the lasting effects of schooling, and particularly how a teacher's or therapist's sensiitivity and openess to new ideas can be valuable as in-depth knowledge. Parents or professionals living or working with a child with coordination difficulties will benifit from reading and re-reading this inspirational bppk. It will also be valuable for physiotherapist, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists. This will be a good read for student teachers, and may influence their attitudes, as well as providing practical advice that will benefit many children with learning challenges. A very good book.
