I strongely recommend this book to parents and teachers with children who have Dyspraxia. I expecailly invite parents to share this book with thier childs teachers. Some teachers are not aware of Dyspraxia, and think these children have ADH. Its a great book- it offers insight on childrens lifes and thier diffculites. It also offers plans for teachers and parents to work together, to ensure a smooth and productive education for their children. Please take the time and read this! What a great book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
