In response to requests for additional resources to support neuro-diverse pupils, Plum Hutton created the Adventures with Diversity series. This is currently a set of six books, three storybooks with accompanying guides for parents and professionals. Each storybook is an exciting adventure aimed at children of 8-12 years old. Woven into the story is information about an area of difficulty and how that issue can be supported. The topics covered are:
- Dyslexia and literacy difficulties
- Autism and social communication difficulties
- Childhood obesity
The stories are intended to be an entertaining read for all children, but may particularly resonate with children who are struggling with additional needs. Titles include:
The accompanying guidebooks are intended for parents and professionals. The topic highlighted in the story is explained and detailed points for discussion are provided. Strategies to support children are also provided.

A Nasty Dose of the Yawns is beautifully written…The story is heart-warming, empathic and yet filled with humour…The supporting guide which is evidenced based, provides very useful and pragmatic strategies and guidelines on how best to support pupils who have Dyslexia.Karin Twiss, Senior Educational Psychologist and Strategic Lead for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Conditions.
I can’t tell you how helpful your book and guide have been in making the behaviour of autistic friends and colleagues seem so much more explicable to me and for providing such clear direction for improving the ways in which I can communicate with them too.Elizabeth Ord, Parent
Childhood obesity is a complex, often emotionally charged topic which can be incredibly difficult to broach. The guide opens the conversation in a gentle, accessible, yet thorough and well-evidenced way.Dr Kirsty Hunter, MBBCh MRCGP
