Living With a Jude
The book describes how it is for a family that is living with a child who has severe learning disabilities.
Jude was born with Microcephaly which brought about Global Development Delay and autism which was not, immediately, diagnosed.
In her book Alice discusses, in a light and heartwarmily honest and humorous way, how Jude's issues impacted not only on Jude but also on the rest of his family, Alice included.
It deals, in a sensitive fashion, with a range of vitally important topics such as the impact of his disabilities including health and diet, social isolation, education and socialisation.
It also looks at the problems and challenges of post-16 life options and further education for children such as Jude.
The book is also very well illustrated with family photographs and will be of great benefit to people who are involved in the care, education, healthcare and treatment of people like Jude or who provide support and assistance to their families as well as to the families themselves.
It's a remarkable book and comes highly recommended by this reviewer.
The book is published by The Book Guild at £9.99 and can be obtained here https://goo.gl/wdCFDG.
