‘My child’s different: ‘It’s still too easy for kids like mine to be written off as naughty’’

September 24, 2018

"When I arrive at Elaine Halligan's house in a leafy London suburb, it is her son, Sam, who shows me into the kitchen. Tall, affable and welcoming, he chats lightly about what he has been up to since graduating from Oxford Brookes University in May - driving to the border of Algeria and then around Europe with some friends; working on his own business, selling classic cars; and applying for a job with a US start-up. Polite and relaxed, he is the epitome of a well-brought-up young man."

Click here to read the full interview with Elaine in The Telegraph.

Elaine Halligan’s My Child’s Different: The lessons learned from one family’s struggle to unlock their son’s potential explores the enabling role that parents can play in bringing the best out of children who are seen as ‘different’ or ‘difficult’.
