Anyone read "Stephen Harris in Trouble"? :P

It's a fantastic insight into the life of a dyspraxic child from the child's viewpoint!

The author, Tim Nichol, is a special needs advisor at an english school in Germany.

A friend lent it to me and I cant put it down - very amusing but thought provoking!

I'm off to bed now to read some more!!! Nite!

-_- xo

hi cheryl, i havent got the book but i saw it advertised a couple of weeks ago, i will be getting it soon. As a parent of a child with dyspraxia i find it really helps me understand my son when i hear it from a childs point of view, even though its written by an adult hes obviously spent time getting to know how some children feel. glad you've enjoyed it.
take care maz. :)

Hi Cheryl and Maz,]

I haven't read the book but I'll look out for it as it sounds very good. I have dyspraxia myself and it would be great to read a book about dyspraxia from the child dyspraxics point of view.

One of my favourite books is 'The Curious Incident of The Dog in The Night-Time' by Marak Haddon about a thirteen-year-old boy with Asperger's Syndrome investigating the mystery of a murdered dog. I don't have AS but I have dyspraxia and a few of the symptoms can be similiar. The book gave me an insight about what life is like for Christopher (The boy) who has AS.
