For those growing up with an intellectual disability, comfortable, safe and independent travel will prove an invaluable life skill. The key to pursuing fulfilling work and leisure activities and developing as an individual, it also brings a liberating level of self-sufficiency and reassurance of equality within society.




Arriving at this goal can be daunting. Dr Gallimores straightforward five-step system will guide parents and professionals through successful training for children of any age and ability. Focusing on understanding each childs individual goals and challenges, it gives you the ingredients needed to fully prepare for each journey in advance, and shows how to judge when to step back and let the child progress alone. Addressing specific fears and obstacles that make travel difficult for children with learning difficulties, it sets out all the precautions necessary to safeguard children and others as they learn to reach their chosen destinations.




Clear-cut and far-reaching, this book is enriched by Dr Gallimores extensive experience as a psychologist, mobility specialist and travel-trainer. It is a heartening resource and will be necessary reading for anyone working with a child to get them on their path to independent travel.
