Join Melanie Dimmitt and Lee Kofman for the launch of Special: antidotes to the obsessions that come with a child’s disability, at Readings Carlton.

Special is an uplifting, candid companion for those in the early stages of navigating a child’s disability, offering honest, reassuring and relatable insight into a largely unknown (and so, initially terrifying) part of our world. 

Inspired by the author’s own crash-landing into special-needs parenthood, and shaped by her conversations with parents of children with wide-ranging disabilities, alongside professional advice, Special shares stories, guidance and simple coping strategies to soothe and surprise anyone whose life has taken an unexpected turn.

Join accomplished author Lee Kofman as she launches Special in Melbourne.
