The book covers:

  • having a learning disability

    Bought for my Husband who has for many years worked with both students with learning difficulties and those with behavioural problems. He is also paints and art has been an enjoyable hobby. The book is a great read and supports what many believe, including him, is a key link between the two.

    Interesting and up to date. Great cover and we'll presented. I've only read first two chapters. The book is relevant to art therapy in the uk.
