"Sadly, the real world is not a friendly place for children with problems like ADHD. There are too many people who refuse to believe it exists, choosing instead to blame parents and kids for its symptoms."

Kids in Museums Feb 10
Love the family labels in 's Picasso exhibition. 🖼 More below. (Paywall 🔐) But it's a shame to still see things like this presented as newsworthy or a novelty. Welcoming children and families should be at the core of every museum's work.

Jessica Kingsley Publishers have a huge range of books on various SEN & Disabilities. Once you find something you want to buy, check google to see if it’s cheaper elsewhere. Check local library too, if they don’t have it you can ask them to buy it.
