New book to inspire parents

A BOGNOR Regis author John Sichel has written his second book aged 80.

His latest work is borne from his experience with his son, who has learning difficulties.

Of Course You Can is named after a favourite phrase of Robin, now 51.

Mr Sichel, of Walton Court, said: “We had to accept the differences in his way of understanding and learning.

“It was challenging but very rewarding because you find a way round the differences. It showed that it’s so important that parents with children with learning difficulties really give them a chance.”

Mr Sichel’s latest book has been praised by a fellow parent of a child with severe learning difficulties, Margaret Petzold, of Ormesby Crescent, Felpham.

She said: “This book is inspirational and informative to a parent starting out on the journey of bringing up a child with learning difficulties.”

Of Course You Can is priced £1.53 (ebook) and £8.99 (paperback) from www.amazon.com. Mr Sichel’s first book urged people to take control of their political systems.
