We have just been recommended this book for advice to people with learning difficulties. What a help! Dr Kirby explains everything you need to know in one brilliant volume of writing.

It sounds a bit melodramatic, but this book is changing our lives. As we come to understand why my daughter's behaviour is as it is, our home is becoming a more harmonious place and she is becoming a happier child.

This is thorough and full of helpful suggestions of strategies parents and teachers can take to help dyspraxic / DCD children overcome obstacles. It does present a bleak picture of children's social prospects but with an 8 year old daughter, I think it is realistic and helpful.

I'm half way through reading this book but still had to write a review now as it is fantastic... i was soo confused when we were told our daughter has dyspraxia and bombarded with information that had my poor head spinning but this book explains it all in simple terms that are easy to digest with great practical advice... This book will be kept on hand at all times. :D a big thank you from 2 now not so confused parents :D

particularly liked this book because it was easy to read and understand and had relevant helpful suggestions as to how to help the child who suffers from dyspraxia. It is a book that helps parents understand the diagnosis and that there is light at the end of the tunnel and they are not alone.

I wanted a general book that would give me a good overview of the condition and some ideas as to how to best help my ten year old son. The book is easy to read, wide ranging and informative.

I bought this book shortly after my 6 year old son was diagnosed with dyspraxia. I had never even heard of it before his class teacher mentioned it(although we knew he had 'a problem' He also has ADHD. This book has been read by parents, aunts, grandparents and friends and it has highlighted that he does have his problems and simply some days he cannot do something (however simple) which he had done the day before, which was what frustrated people the most about him.
Highly recemmended.

If you or someone you care for or about suffers from dyspraxia then this book is the only publication you need.
It covers everything from birth to adulthood with plenty of help and self-help strategies throughout.
Written by a doctor whose son has dyspraxia, it is informative and extremely helpful without any of the patronising overtones quite often found elsewhere. Professionals who come into contact with dyspraxic children and adults would do well to read it too!

Helpful. I am a special education teacher and this is an excellent book for parents and teachers. It is strategy based which is great, but it is in a list format. I was looking for more connection between theory and practice, but this is my area of speciality. This is an excellent introduction, but was not challenging enough for me. But I am trained in this area so I know a lot of this already.

My son is awaiting tests and appts for this condition and I hadn't a clue as to what it was really, I stumbled upon this wonderful book which is a great guide, informative piece at an easy to digest pace.
Since reading it I have joined dyspraxia forums etc and noticed that this book comes highly recommended by other parent and professionals.
