Great news for my fans! My books are now in a lot of your local libraries!
My books can also be found in Westminster Libraries, Newham Libraries (East Ham and Stratford) and soon Barking & Dagenham Libraries. Following the feedback from my fans, this is so everyone can read and re-read and recommend to their heart’s content. So read for free! Why not drop my a line here or a book review, or if you prefer pop to my Facebook page, or website. Have a great Summer!
I am spearheading a pilot scheme across three boroughs using ARTY TARDY as an educational tool in order to promote inclusion.
Three schools from Newham, Dagenham and Redbridge have expressed an interest and have started reading the book with children. The hope is that it can help to integrate SEN pupils and promote understanding of Autism and in particular Asperger. There has already been some excellent feedback with pupils and parents who have connected with the book and for whom it has made a difference.
It has also just been selected by a school as a resource to fulfil the Inclusivity Module for their QuILT Accreditation – great news!
There is a PHOTO SHOOT next week where I look forward to meeting pupils, reading the book with them and having a Q&A session!
I’ll keep you updated about future news/media interest as it comes in.
Don’t forget to check out the Children’s Review page on my website to read what some of the children have to say!
I am over the moon that Kensington Primary School is also reading Arty Tardy with a Year 6 class. I will be popping in to get feedback from the children which will I really value – after all it is them who I am writing for!
So pleased – so honoured
This afternoon I had a lovely ⅵsit to Earlham Primary School where I used to work as a Teaching Assistant. Head Teacher Laura Hewer was so warm and welcoming and it was great to see the staff and children who still remembered me! Even better is the fact that the teacher I used to work with – Miss Kirby – my hero and role model is going to be reading ARTY TARDY with a Year 6 class!
What a wonderful afternoon!
