Description of this Book

The `Get to Know Me' resources aim to support children, with and those around them, who may have additional/special educational needs. They are designed to empower the professionals and adults who support those with identified needs. Developed by child psychologist Louise Lightfoot, the series includes activities specific to anxiety, depression and OCD. In supporting the social and emotional health of students, it equips them with the ability to thrive, personally and academically. This book has been created for key adults (teachers, therapists and parents) as a complement to the picture book and draw-along versions of Tidy Tim - a traditional narrative story exploring thoughts, feelings and sensations experienced by many children with OCD. The activities in this book offer practical tools and strategies to support the child and those around them in addition to the information specific to the condition to improve understanding of a child's needs to promote empathy and acceptance. Picture book and draw-along versions of Tidy Tim are available separately, and as part of the Get to Know Me: Tidy Tim set.

Author's Bio

Dr Louise Lightfoot is an Educational and Child Psychologist working with children and young people aged 0-25. She holds a BA in Educational Studies, MEd in the Psychology of Education and doctorate in Educational and Child Psychology. Louise has worked in a variety of settings ranging from mainstream schools to secure units and psychiatric facilities, and has a special interest in working to empower at risk or 'hard to reach' groups. As a person who suffers with Ehlers Danlos, stroke and dyslexia, she has a first-hand understanding of the frustrations and difficulties that accompany a specific physical or learning difficulty. Catherine Hicks is an East Yorkshire artist, illustrator, wife and mother. She spent 13 years as a Registered Veterinary Nurse before injury and chronic illnesses lead to her creative hobby becoming therapy. When Catherine and Louise were introduced, it was obvious they were kindred spirits and from there the Get to Know Me Series was born.
