Product Description

Desmond the Dragon happens to have Dyspraxia and sometimes falls over his wings. He gets embarrassed and turns purple. He is scared about meeting new friends because he thinks they will be scared of him.

This book uses engaging animal characters within the story to explain how Dyspraxia may present and is designed to encourage children to be more inclusive in their play.

Each book uses Widgit Symbols throughout to support understanding and to ensure the book is inclusive to all children.

Written by Wendy Usher 

Here is what a parent has to say about this book: 

“My little boy (aged 7) has dyspraxia, and in recent months has often felt down about this and has even said about himself “I’m stupid” and “no-one should like me”, I have tried on countless occasions to reassure him that he is not stupid but he would not believe me.
This book is perfect. My boy loved the colourful pictures, easy to read text (he also has great difficulty with reading) and most of all enjoyed hearing about a character “like me” (in his words).
By reading this book it has helped him understand that there are other people like him around.” – Parent, Nottinghamshire
