Stephen Harris is a clumsy boy: he spills juice at the dinner table, loses his school bag on the bus and struggles to read his own messy handwriting. How will he cope at secondary school, where there will be so many different things to learn and remember, when he can't even tie his shoe-laces? Stephen's school life looks set to be full of trouble until a new teacher and a new special needs advisor arrive to help Stephen with his coordination, concentration and organisation difficulties.
Taking a light-hearted look at life through the eyes of an eleven-year-old boy who has dyspraxia, this book is not just a great read - it includes ideas for improving coordination and concentration (at home and at school), how to handle homework and tactics for tackling bullies.
An engaging story for young and old alike, Stephen Harris in Trouble provides all the information needed to understand and further appreicate anyone with a Developmental Coordination Disorder.
