    “Dear Fay, Heather and Rose, Just a short note to thank you for your great book “Special Girls’ Business’. Last year when our adopted daughter, a gorgeous spunky girl with Down Syndrome, started to develop I asked her school if they had anything for me to read to prepare her for her periods. They didn’t. So I remembered Family Planning and rang them, they were so helpful and suggested your book. I ordered it, and it was perfect! It started off with a girl who was 10 and she was. She wanted me to read it to her every night. It became her favourite bedtime story. Just before her 11th birthday she got her periods, and thanks to your outstanding book she was totally prepared. Her period bag had been in her school bag for 5 months, and she was so capable and informed, her teachers were most impressed. I am so proud of her, thanks to your guys. Well done".
    A mum
    “We found Special Girls’ Business™ an appropriate and sensitive guide for adolescent girls with special needs. While girls with physical disabilities may always require help from a carer for period management, this book is an easily understood and clear guide for both the girls and their carers".
