Marion Burns, Higher Level Teaching Assistant -“ Learning Support, Dormston School
My Child's Different is inspiring, challenging and heart-warming in equal measure. Its short, chronologically arranged chapters chart Sam's story from infancy to adulthood, and Elaine Halligan's honest account is paired with useful and thoughtful annotations from both Sam himself and parenting coach Melissa Hood. Each chapter also offers opportunity for reflection and signposts to further reading.
The book's overall message is one of hope, with a clear charge to schools and colleges to enable the square pegs to find a place of welcome and acceptance. A potentially life-changing read for parents and professionals alike.
