1 Review
Suspect there's something "different" about your child? This book will help you navigate those early stages of your child's life when a diagnosis is nowhere in sight. Not knowing how to help your child can leave you totally frustrated, or frightened into inaction by a vision of what may lie ahead. Written by a mother who understands (At first, she tried with all her might to avoid her son's diagnosis!), this book humorously and gently prods parents into action, beginning with such chapters as:
  • Was That the Exit to Normal?"
  • Rules of the Road
  • Labels - You Gotta Love 'Em
  • To School or Not to School
