Alice Soule shares the story of her challenging family life and experiences, Living with a Jude after being inspired by her blog of the same name. Living with a Jude looks at Alice’s family experiences, situations and decisions that they have faced as a family by having a son with severe learning disabilities.
Jude was born with Microcephaly and thus has Global Development Delay and undiagnosed Autism. With a light-hearted and warm approach, Alice discusses topics including isolation, diet and health, socialisation, education and post-16 options for children like Jude.
Alice’s honest approach to raising a disabled child aims to allow people to understand just how challenging it can be but also to help other parents in the same situation so that they feel they are not alone. Living with a Jude expresses to the world just how wonderful it is to have a diversity of character within communities and that not everyone can be expected to follow the same path in life.
Author Alice Soule lives in Hertfordshire with her fiancé Joe, three children – Jude, Elsa and Emmeline, two cats – Patty and Stups, and a hamster – Barney. Alice currently works as a freelance writer and blogger after previously working in education and social research.
