Many children are likely to come in contact with someone who has suffered a stroke: a relative, a friend, a neighbour. For this reason 'Grandpa's Had A Stroke' has been written to help children come to an acceptance and understanding of stroke. In this way the child can approach the person without fear, can understand and be supportive in the person's often long rehabilitation process. 'Grandpa's Had A Stroke' will be very useful for rehabilitation professionals to recommend to parents and other adults for such children. The book will also be a useful tool for teachers and thus play in producing a community better educated about stroke.
