Waterstones (where my husband works) are producing a leaflet in conjunction with te Down Syndrome Educational Trust that will be going out to teachers & special needs assistants in schools, and they want to list 6 books that will have general appeal to carers/teachers of children with SN

anything you can recommend? ta!

What a fab idea!

I always like dipping into this book:

Chnanged by a Child

It is very 'American', IYKWIM, but still very good . It is written for parents, however I think it would be really useful for carers and teachers to read.
