Explaining adoption to SEN BC

Hi all!

Just a quick question, do any of you know of or can you recommend any books to help explain adoption to a birth child with SEN.

My DS is 10 and is in mainstream school. He has been kept fully up to speed with the whole adoption process and is fully aware of what the whole process means. In his eyes, he's not going to be the youngest anymore - he's going to be someone's big brother!

Our SW has given me a list of books to read but none of them account for SEN. I just wondered if anyone has found any literature that may be helpful - I need to ensure he has all the facts to ease the process on smoothly!

Thank you!

There is a very wide range of children SEN Books by children on Royal College of Psychiatry Webb site just google site and search Children's information Books.
Hope it will be of some use if not just in general.

Thank you Fasparent! Much appreciated, I'm just on my way to the library so will ask them there too!

Forgot too say if you do find some book useful and is out of print or such like', can use Amazon see if they have it or a second hand one for sale.
Good Luck
