Set of 5 books written by Wendy Usher
Set of 5 books written by Wendy Usher.
Wendy is the founder of The Play Doctors and uses over 30 years experience both as a parent and professional to write practical hands on award winning books to provide ideas and suggestions to support children and young people who happen to have additional needs.
Wendy says: ‘I don’t want to give people theory, I want to respond to real life and take a look at what works well and why, what does not work so well and why and what can I do about it. All of the books I write are based on real life and I use lots of anecdotes and stories to bring the learning to life’
Testimonials: ‘I love Wendy’s books – they are so real and relevant to life at home and also life in the classroom. I use the ideas all the time and have shared my copies with other parents’ Cathy – Newcastle (parent of son on the autism spectrum and teacher).
‘I am a primary school teacher and had little experience of working with autism. Hey children on the autism spectrum really helped me understand and change the way I worked. I now think about how I am responding to the child and adapt the way I present the work to respond to his learning style. I have a far more peaceful classroom’ Jenny – teacher in Milton Keynes
