A doctor is encouraging Crawley schools to help children learn about health conditions with her children’s books.

Dr Jo Johnson has written a series of books which feature characters with long-term conditions such as dementia and MS. Dr Johnson said she aimed to create a generation which will know how to interact with people with these sorts of conditions. She also said the books are useful for children who have family members with health issues. To find out more email Dr Johnson at neuropsychology@talktalk.net
