Book release - learning to live with a disability
We did it
On 23rd January 2017 we successfully raised £100 with 4 supporters in 21 days

I've written a book which shows the struggles I and many children face when having a learning disability. Hoping it will raise awareness.

I have wanted for so many years to write a book which highlights the struggles I faced as a child throughout my school years.

For a great lenght of time my disability was un-diagnosed but, even when I was diagnosed, very little was and is widely known about it. Meaning I struggled constantly and did not get the support that I so sorely needed throughout my school years.

I have been completely open and honest throughout my book, revealing the many dark secrets of my past. Hoping to enagage, educate and bring some kind of awareness to the effect it had and has on people like me. 

Lacking confidence for so many years, I hope, that this brings some kind of comfort to people like me and I wish to give half of any money I hopefully make from the sales of my book to the learning disability foundation. 

Many thanks for taking the time to read this. 

Daniella :)
