However, the addition of speech therapy, behaviour modification, social skills classes, and occupational therapy (to name a few), while necessary to some children's development, may also reinforce a sense of brokenness. In spite of our good intentions our actions may risk eroding a tender ego.
Lovable Sameh takes a moment to honor a child for who he is. As spoken words are seldom enough, Lovable Sameh attempts to ensure, through visual examples, that Sameh is a wonderful and precious child, who is deeply valued amongst his friends and adored by his family.

The Sameh Series
'These books are beautifully yet simply illustrated and written in an appealing child-friendly typeface. They are suitable for reading to children aged 3 years+, or independently by 5-8 year olds...This lively series is definitely a valuable resource for parents and their children, speech and language therapists of all levels of expertise, teachers and other health professionals enjoyed at home, school or in the clinic, and be particularly useful to those working closely with young children who have social communication difficulties such as autism and other spectrum disorders and syndromes.'
The books are very appealing, using cartoons style illustrations. They deal sensitively and in a light-hearted way with some of the problems young children have and are short enough to sustain attention. Highly recommended for the positive messages and the matter-of-fact style.' - SEN Magazine
