Michelle Finds a Voice

This is the story of a young woman with cerebral palsy who is unable to speak, and finds it difficult to communicate what she is thinking and feeling to people who might help her. She feels isolated and unhappy. Her supporters and carers are frustrated that they cannot understand or recognise her needs.
Michelle Finds a Voice shows what happens to Michelle, and how she and her carers are helped to overcome difficulties. Various solutions are explored, including signing, symbol charts and electronic communication. Many people will be able to identify with Michelle.
One of the Books Beyond Words series
Professor the Baroness Hollins and her team have spent many years working with people who find pictures easier to understand than words, and have learnt a lot about what is important to them. Books Beyond Words are the result of careful development with the help of the people who read the books, and with family, supporters and professional experts.
