Sam's Trouble with Words

by Lorna Miles
£6.95   paperback  CoramBAAF (2014)

Sam Sam has a secret and he doesn’t want anyone to find out what it is. He has trouble reading, writing and spelling and is worried that his new foster family will not want him to stay if they find out. With the help of his carers, teachers and social worker, Sam soon discovers that his secret is a real problem with a real name – dyslexia – and that lots of clever people have the same problem too! Will things get easier for Sam now?
This story about dyslexia will be helpful for any child aged seven to 11 who has difficulty reading and writing, or who knows someone who does. The book includes a question and answer section which covers a wide range of queries and concerns about dyslexia, and provides practical information and advice in a straightforward and child-friendly style.
Sam's Trouble with Words is one of a new series of books for children exploring health conditions that are common to many looked after children. Other titles in the series focus on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Foetal Alcohol Syndrome and emotional and behavioural difficulties. The books in the series will be invaluable for social workers, foster carers, adopters, residential workers, health care practitioners and teachers to use with children who have these health issues or who know an affected child.
