Amanda Kehoe’s Books Shows Disabilities are not Barriers
International children’s author Amanda Kehoe will visit the Rathmichael Parish Primary School in May for a book signing event. She will also read for the pupils in attendance. Her book ‘TJ and his Wheelable Chair’ carries a beautiful message for children, especially those who have disabilities. Her son Tadhg was the inspiration for her book, he was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and Global Development Delay in 2009. She gave up work to take care of her son. The main character of the book is TJ who is not able to walk or talk but that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t enjoy playing with his friends. He listens and becomes the part of the play. The sweet story shows that having a disability is in no way a barrier to happiness. Amanda currently resides in Newbridge with her family.
