Tomorrow, Monday, May 15, 2017 begins a different sort of book blog tour. Your Stories Matter is a new publisher in children’s literature. Based in Kendal, Cumbria Your Stories Matter and its parent publishing company, Explainer HQ, were founded by Paul Johnson. These companies provide creative video, audio, animation and print to the business and education sector.
Your Stories Matter publishes stories about neurodiversity, which embraces neurological conditions as merely differences, not simply difficulties in learning. Theses conditions include Dyslexia, ADD and ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, and Dyspraxia or Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) and tools it can be used to help with these conditions like for instance the top rated fidget spinner that are being used in case of children with ADHD.
All of Your Stories Matter titles are published in paperback, making them affordable. Most online booksellers, including Amazon UK should have these books.
