This book, published by LDA arrived in the office on the 2nd February and as you can see, Lynn is delighted to have recieved a copy of her words in print.
Lynn said' "After two years of writing the primary and secondary books, it's amazing to see what I have written actually in print. It's a book for mainstream teachers, TAs and SENCOs, full of practical advice and examples. It works through the primary years from the early years to the transition to high school in Year 6. I hope that it will be a handbook to help teachers support a child with autism all through their primary years.

The word "ACCOMPLISHED" was one offered by the pupil, and I thought it was great.
