Creating ‘Trudy and Me’ has enabled me to combine my love of drawing and painting with my back ground in the study of literature and my experience of working as an Occupational Therapist in learning disability and mental health. It has been an amazing project to work on and we hope that the book entertains as well as informs.

I am Trudy’s mum first of all so I have learned a lot about what it is like to live with disability. I am also a teacher of children with Additional Support Needs in Scotland. I wanted to be part of creating this book in order to widen the audience of people who know about disability and particularly Down’s Syndrome.
