Emily’s sister is different from other children she knows.
She seems to struggle with things most of us just do naturally.
In this delightfully illustrated story, based upon real family experiences, Emily discovers how to understand and help her sister live a happier life.
Emily’s Sister: A Family’s Journey With Dyspraxia and Sensory Processing Disorder, written by the parent of a child with Dyspraxia and Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), paves the way for parents, teachers and medical professionals to discuss these specific leaning difficulties with children.
Unlike most other books on the subject, this book has been written from a child’s prospective: enabling young people to ask questions of the story in a non-threatening way and encouraging them to discover how it relates to them.
This book can be shared with children having special needs, their family and their classmates.
“The questions Emily poses to her mom about her sister with special needs are most likely the same any child in the same situation has. Adults sharing this book with a child will find many conversation starters to help siblings, friends, and classmates understand the needs and behaviors of children with special needs.”
