About Rosemary

Rosemary Starrett

Rosemary Starrett, the author of A Busy Day, has been teaching for 11 years.

Originally, she taught in a mainstream school but quickly found that she had a heart for special educational needs and moved to a school for children with severe learning difficulties. The children at this school range from age 3 to 8 years, and have been diagnosed with a number of syndromes or learning difficulties.

Rosemary quickly became aware that the reading schemes in her school were unsuitable for visual learners, in particular for children on the Autistic Spectrum. She decided to create her own reading programme, and from this A Busy Day was born.

Rosemary’s sister, Jane Feeney, illustrated the drawings for A Busy Day. Jane can be contacted at janefeeney@hotmail.com
