There are times when any parent/carer wonders how best to support their child through a difficult time. This ‘Helpful Handbooks’ series does not offer quick-fix solutions. There usually aren’t any! The books aim to provide parents/carers with user-friendly information about a concern – perhaps to confirm what they are already doing, or to suggest new ideas that might help. Each booklet also has suggestions for other resources that might help. A parent/carer may also use them as a framework to discuss their concerns with the school or other professionals.
