A New Home In the Community

$23.21

Thinking in pictures

People who can’t read or who don’t like written words are often very good at reading pictures. That’s why there are no words in these picture stories.
These books all tell a story, but they also let the reader tell their own story – the one they see in the pictures. This can tell you a lot about a person’s inner world and their understanding of situations. There is plenty to talk about and each story explores feelings and relationships as well as giving information.

For someone with a learning disability, leaving a long stay hostel or hospital to go to a group home can be rather a frightening experience. This book is designed to help people with learning disabilities make a happy transition to a new home.

Not only will the house be much smaller, but many jobs, previously done by staff, now have to be shared out. In this book Stephen goes through all the traumas and thrills of moving. He likes his new home, but not everything is rosy. He makes mistakes and has quarrels, but he discovers that people care and understand, and want to help him feel at home.
