Alli Can't Write
A Storybook for Children with Handwriting Difficulties including those with: Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, Dyspraxia & ADHD
Author 1: Maria Chivers
This delightful fun book, with beautifully hand-drawn and creative illustrations, for children ages 6 – 10 is about an alligator called Alli, who has dysgraphia and has to deal with the frustrations, shame and despair of not being able to write. People with dysgraphia, often have very slow writing, illegible or lacking in fluency, finding getting their ideas in the correct order particularly hard.
The book discusses how peers can be cruel to anyone who is different; it will help to explain to young children about the nature of diversity and acceptance; not just in the classroom but throughout society.
This book should be read by children, parents, educators and anyone who has a loved one struggling with a learning difference. It’s a story of resilience and hope. There is a section for parents and educators where Maria Chivers explains what dysgraphia is and provides extensive information, help, practical strategies and useful tips to help students with difficulties meet their full potential.
