Bridges to Success

This is a very powerful and clear book that uses Olive’s extensive understanding of NLP and experience of special learning difficulties to explore and reframe much of the existing way that education and society deals with people who simply process differently.

She writes utilising her experience of working with children with special learning difficulties to explain how we can utilise their strengths and understand the strategies they run and help to give them better life prospects and more clarity. This book outlines her work with many of parents to provide simple steps to greater understanding of their own child and family orientation related to the numerous different type of spectrum difficulties.
For the experience NLP practitioner there is plenty to utilise in your work and improve your understanding special learning difficulties in both children and adults. So many clients have low self-esteem associated with forms of dyslexia and ADHD etc.

For the lay person Olive offers clear and easy to understand direction, guidance and techniques to explore effective strategies for special learning difficulties. The many case studies provide detailed anecdotal evidence about its results, many of which are life changing for both parents and child.
The book is easy to understand, well researched and simple to follow. I found the small font used in the case studies rather annoying to read and there is some overlap between the chapters, but this is essentially reinforcing the message and not distracting.

If you are involved with special learning difficulties in any way, either professionally or personally I would recommend you read this book, absorb its insights and put the techniques to use. It will change some of your thinking and at the very least provide you with another perspective.
