Special Needs

The Royal College of Psychiatrists have produced some excellent books and resources called Books Beyond Words (BBW) as a series of picture books that make communicating easier for these people, and enable discussion about difficult topics. There is also supporting text and guidelines for carers, supporters and professionals. The series is particularly useful for people with learning difficulties.

There is a book which is written about some one with learning difficulties who has a cancer experience.
