The mother of a girl with a communication disorder has written a children’s book to help other people understand her daughter’s condition.

Sarah Casement, from Eastham, has two little girls - Luna, 4 and Violet, 2.

Although still waiting for a confirmed diagnosis, Luna is suspected to have a social communication and interaction disorder with speech delay.

Mum Sarah told the Globe: "I was inspired to write a story after I came across a video about how you can self publish on Amazon.

"I’d been desperate to read something that we could relate to as a family and thought hey why don’t I do that?"

Sarah's book, titled This is our Lunaverse, is written from the perspective of Violet, how much she loves her sister and have fun together. But it also highlights the difficulties Luna can face and how although things may seem different, people should still appreciate everyone and their differences.

Sarah said: "It’s a heartwarming story and really helps other children understand in such an easy way. Families have absolutely loved it so far, with many teachers sharing it with their classes.

"I know first hand how daunting a diagnosis can be. The prospects of the future can be overwhelming so I wanted a story that would help other families going through the same thing know they’re not alone."

Having suffered long delays to see a paediatrician on the NHS - due in part to the Coronavirus pandemic - Luna saw Dr Dixit at Pall Mall Medical Centre in Manchester privately, for a developmental assessment in December last year.

She has since received support for speech and language and received support from a Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) before starting school this year.

This is our Lunaverse is available from Amazon in paperback format for £5.
