Jenny has moved to a group home, but she is very unhappy and unsettled. Things come to a head when her support worker finds a photo of Dad.
Sensitively, the support worker helps Jenny to feel secure enough to talk about why she is upset. Jenny discloses that she was sexually abused by her father. The story shows how the warmth and trust of her support worker and friends begin a healing process which will bring hope and a fresh start for Jenny.
Jenny Speaks Out may enable a person with an intellectual disability or mental health problem, or someone who has English as a second language, to open up about their experience of sexual abuse.
One of the Books Beyond Words series
Professor the Baroness Hollins and her team have spent many years working with people who find pictures easier to understand than words, and have learnt a lot about what is important to them. Books Beyond Words are the result of careful development with the help of the people who read the books, and with family, supporters and professional experts.
