Hello, my name is Pip Carr and l am an author of the children’s book "The Sea Rabbits Of Greystones" l tour around Primary/Junior schools Free of Charge to hightlight dyslexia awareness and also a little to promote my book.
I normally do classroom to classroom for approximately 20 minutes to 30 minutes and explain to the students, that when l was at school nobody had really heard of dyslexia, and it wasn´t until later on in my life that l discovered l was. So growing up was also a problem. I then "read" a chapter of my book with the help of a teacher, l´ve got over the embrassment, then followed by a Q & A session.
If there are any parents or SEN teachers who would be interested then please visit my website www.thesearabbits.com which not only gives you the first chapter free but also some of the school visits l´ve done and contact details. Thank you
