Show synopsis These two books offer an enjoyable and accessible resource for carers working with clients who have a learning to improve their social skills. They compromise a series of stories about John, Terry, Danny, Lucy and Liz, five people with learning disabilities who share a house together. Moving Out and Moving On focuses on decision making. How can you make an informed choice when you have never had to decide anything for yourself? How can a carer help his or her client to a greater degree of self-sufficiency? Relationships addresses topics such as friendships, bullying, loss, depression and romance. By focusing on five likeable and recognizable characters and their adventures, the books sustain the reader's interest while exploring important areas of teaming. Each story concludes with a section for the carer: a synopsis of issues covered and suggestions for developing them with the client. Thus, the books can be used in a multitude of ways, as a reader for adults with a learning disability, as a teaching aid for carers to explore the nature of relationships with their clients and as a resource for workshops, group work or drama sessions.
