Jamie has Down’s syndrome, autistic spectrum disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. He is a beautiful, charming and lovable little boy, but he is also - how can we put this? - an exceptionally “challenging” child.
In this hilarious, heart-warming and unforgettable memoir, Jamie's long-suffering dad shares a selection of side-splitting and occasionally poignant stories from Jamie’s chaotic childhood. Find out why he can never go back to his local library, and why the staff at his local swimming pool flinch whenever he arrives.
The author also offers his own witty take on all sorts of topics connected to the subject of disability, and parenthood in general. This book will be adored by anyone who has ever known someone with special needs, or has ever been a parent, or indeed, anyone who enjoys reading well-written and interesting comic memoirs.
Don't Let It Get You Down Syndrome
There are only so many times that you can hear people say “You should write a book about Jamie” before you eventually yell at them “All right! If I promise to do it will you stop going on about it?”
