Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
I have read this book myself and found it to be very easy to read and understand as the author does not use 'jargon' and it kept me interested from beginning to end. I was very impressed with the way Jill Curtis comes across as friendly and caring and really wanting to help parents. Most of the stories and experiences are provided by parents and children themselves and, as a parent of a disabled daughter, I found reading the book to be uplifting, encouraging, sad, emotional, informative and supportive. There were times when I read other parents experiences that I was reduced to tears of sadness, other times when I though "That's exactly what I feel" and times when I was uplifted and encouraged by the very personal stories. I found the book to be very useful and I think all parents will find something in it which applies to them.

I found the writing style first class because Jill Curtis manages to sound friendly, interested and available throughout. This makes difficult and emotional subjects easy to read and absorb because one feels Jill is there to help rather than lecture. Secondly, I thought the detailed discussion of the various possible problems easy to follow because Jill Curtis avoids the 'show-off' jargon. A pleasant easy approach that kept me interested, even in those sections which did not apply directly to me.

I was very impressed with this book - and particularly with the balanced and accurate reporting of Tourette Syndrome (a refreshing change).
My son has a diagnosis of TS, but this book may well have helped us identify it a lot sooner.
I've also suspected that he may have dyspraxia - and reading the section on dyspraxia confirms it.

Hidden Disability is excellent for parents trying to figure out how to cope with a child that is 'different'. Accessible, quick to read, with a good index of UK support resources.

Well written, good to hear of people's experiences, made me feel less isolated as I battled for help . Fortunately now it is somewhat easier to get help for children who have dyslexia
