    DescriptionAdolescence is hard for most of us, but for an individual with developmental co-ordination disorder (DCD) it can be twice as hard. Amanda Kirby, the mother of a DCD child herself, addresses the main difficulties encountered by adolescents with DCD, including building relationships and coping with secondary school. With a common-sense approach, she provides a series of practical ideas on how individuals can tackle these difficulties. This book is a useful resource for adolescents with DCD, as well as parents, teachers and health professionals.

    Review quote
    'This is a practical guide written by someone who knows what she's talking about... the content is education, explanation and advice on everyday matters including hygiene, family interaction, cooking, relationships, school life, homework and examinations. The advice and strategies promote independence and personal competence. Almost all the solutions are inexpensive and very realistic. The recommendations will benefit teachers, helpers, parents and adolescents...Uncluttered layout, plain English and bullet-point lists make for an easy read...You get a treasure trove of tips presented in highly accessible, timesaving, comprehensive checklists ...It's the many things you might have missed, need reminding of, or just never thought of, that make this book especially valuable.' -Afasic News
