The Solution is in Your Hands
for Children’s Learning & Behavioural Difficulties
by Heather Sutcliffe
This very large volume is based on 20 years of Heather’s clinical experience, which includes Kinesiology. It is a large format book of over 650 pages of incredible detail on working with learning & behavioural issues - perhaps one of the most comprehensive ever written in the field.
This book will be of interest to all who are working with children. It is a detailed ‘go-to-manual’ that provides greater understanding on what really matters, together with credible research outcomes. It is a must for all professionals who work with children and for parents and grandparents, particularly those who favour their left brain or have the need for simple but in-depth information.. It will support you with:
Crucial knowledge as to what is happening for individual children
What to look for as indicators and typical present day observable behaviours
Behaviours that you may be aware of but have not considered important
How to test and verify the existence of the child’s weaknesses
Classroom and home strategies that will support children’s development
Specific simple therapy for the appropriate people to carry out
Easy, fun exercises that will support children’s development and overcome their weaknesses
Case studies to reinforce your understanding and the effectiveness of what I am presenting
Scientific research that validates the theories and strategies
An extensive bibliography
Although large, (what can we expect when we are endeavouring to change children’s experiences, – surely they are worth this investment of time and money), it is an easy read, involving a large font, and a two column layout that does not have to be read from cover to cover but instead dipped into when the need arises. However, please, may I advise you to read the chapter ‘How to Use this Book’ as you will find it very helpful in gaining the most from what the book has to offer you.
There is a mind map at the beginning of each chapter which succinctly covers the contents of the chapter. At times this will be all that is needed to satisfy the reader’s understanding and needs for the chapter. The mind maps also acts as a reminder, without having to read the whole chapter again.
