About the Author

Janis Ford is a dedicated teacher, mother and grandmother.

Born in 1937 in South Wales, UK, Janis qualified at Bishop Otter College, Chichester, England as a Primary School teacher in 1957. Shortly after qualifying she was offered a position with the London Education Authority. Janis married and, while her two children were young, established and ran her own pre-school for twelve years. Janis then went on to work for the Richmond Upon Thames Education Authority.

After immigrating with her family to Cape Town, South Africa in 1982, Janis researched traditional African stories and rewrote them for publication for reading schemes in schools. Many of her own stories have been published by Macmillan Education England for their African Reading Scheme. A few years ago she wrote thirty stories for the animated TV series "African Myths and Legends" and she has recently had ten adventure stories for twelve year olds published.

Janis has given lectures to mature students at teacher training establishments and has written a teachers resource book on how to spot children with learning problems in the classroom.

Janis continues to teach children who are experiencing learning difficulties. Over the years she has realised more and more that parents need more information, help and guidance on what they can do at home to identify and minimise potential problems. Now she has written this book especially for them.

Parents, this book is for you.
