Layla's Life, My Words: An insight into the world of a child with Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder by Shushma Jain

Shushma Jain sheds light on ‘invisible disabilities’ such as FASD, Cystic Fibrosis, anxiety, sensory processing disorder and attachment parenting. She reveals what strategies she uses to support her child and why she took the decision to home-educate her indefinitely last year.

“Well done Shushma and your amazing family, you have written a great little book explaining educating and living along side your daughter with FASD. I read this book within two days as I could not put it down. 

Your courage and vision to understand, listen and advocate for your daughter is pioneering. I hope many others will learn from this great book and parents listen to their inner selves and are able to be confident when caring and advocating for their amazing FASD children. 

 

FASD is a diagnosis, this does not totally define a individual it merely helps unlock the amazing person they are so they can understand themselves and live the life they choose . 

 

“Uniqueness belongs to one YOU... embrace it, own it, enjoy it – there is only ONE YOU!”

Hope Nicely's Lessons for Life by Caroline Day

Hope Nicely hasn't had an easy life. But she's happy enough living at 23 Station Close with her mum, Jenny Nicely, and she loves her job, walking other people's dogs. She's a bit different, but as Jenny always tells her, she's a rainbow person, a special drop of light. It's just . . . there's something she needs to know. Why did her birth mother abandon her in a cardboard box on a church step twenty-five years ago? And did she know that drinking while pregnant could lead to Hope being born with Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder? 

‘Caroline Day really captures, in an inspiring and eye-opening way, the life journey of Hope Nicely. Hope is an inspiring character, she brings a real insight into how she feels and views the world around her. Her FASD does not define her, it merely makes her the amazing person she is’
