Postscript;Letter;News and opinion

THANK you for publicising the Boox for Us project (TES, November 12). But no mention was made of our project with young people with learning difficulties. Unlike boys they may not be seen as a "problem", but do experience social exclusion.

We both learnt a lot from the project and would encourage readers to purchase "The Reading Kit" mentioned in the article.
