Have you heard the tale about a shark with a Giant Fin? Well we have, and we are incredibly excited to announce that we have partnered up with author Phil Claydon to help even more children and young people. 

Inspired by his own son, Phil has created a children's book about discovering we are all unique and different. A shark with a giant fin sets off on a quest to find another shark that looks like him. It is a fantastic message that fits in perfectly with Youth Options' values. 

Phil Claydon, author of Giant Fin said

'The message of Giant fin was inspired by my son who has ASD and ADHD, who would come home from school saying 'I want to be normal. I don't want to be different.' We would tell him that being different is what makes him unique. The world needs different. So Giant Fin was written to reinforce this message for my son and all the other children who feel the same around the world.'

You can purchase the book on Amazon here. 10% of all profits come to Youth Options.
