Adolescence 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.
Amanda Kirby is Medical Director of the Dyscovery Centre in Cardiff and has written a number of best-selling books in the field of DCD and Dyspraxia. As the parent of a child with DCD, she has first-hand experience of the difficulties facing adolescents as they journey to adulthood.
