Four new books, sponsored by the Department for Work and Pensions, have been produced by Books Beyond Words. They were warmly received at a Reception to Launch the Books in the House of Lords on 30th April. Baroness Sheila Hollins, Founder of Books Beyond Words, explained the background to the Project, and the process of developing the four books in tandem.
Professor Barry Carpenter, who co – authored with Dr Roger Banks, the book “Choosing my First Job”, spoke at the Launch about the challenge of Transition for young people with Learning Disabilities, and the potential of the books to reduce anxiety, and explain more clearly the rich array of post school opportunities.
