This is our library of reviews of books focused on, or linked with, learning difficulties
Research can be a lengthy process and our team wanted to have a more immediate way of sharing their expertise with the general public than is normally possible for researchers.
Our solution? A series of book reviews to help you decide whether to invest time in a title or just leave it on the shelf.
We're publishing one review per month here on our website to accumulate a library that we hope will be genuinely helpful.
The staff team from our charity partners the Salvesen Research Centre are working alongside us on this initiative to also share their practitioners’ expertise.
