In this unabridged audiobook version of her heartwarming title, Elaine Halligan shares the true story of her son Sam, who by the age of seven had been excluded from three schools and was later labelled with a whole host of conditions ranging from autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) to pathological demand avoidance (PDA), before finally being diagnosed with dyslexia. He had become 'the Alphabet Kid'. His family never gave up on him, however
Drawing lessons from Sam's transformational journey from difficult child to budding entrepreneur, Elaine has teamed up with parenting expert Melissa Hood to offer encouragement to parents who may be concerned about what the future might hold, and to demonstrate how with the right support and positive parenting skills their children can grow up to surprise and delight them.
Interspersed throughout the narrative are the reflections and insights of parenting expert Melissa Hood, who illustrates the key concepts from Sam's story and shares practical positive parenting techniques to help parents better connect with their children. Also included are contributions from Sam himself providing an additional, uniquely rich perspective that will help deepen parents' understanding of their children's feelings and emotions.
