Meet the Author

Cindy Cook is a full time working Mom of 3, wife, and caregiver to her mother. As a Registered Nurse with a Masters in Forensic Science, she found learning about her oldest son's diagnosis easy, but applying the knowledge and educating those around her difficult. It was most difficult for her second son, who is only 20 months younger. In order to help him, and eventually her daughter, understand why the eldest is so different, she wrote David is Different: Explaining Aspergers to Young Children. Her concept is now being used by several physicians and licensed clinical social workers to explain to patients/clients how someone with Aspergers is different. But, understanding and coping are two different things, so she wrote Dealing With David. As a side benefit, the publications have helped educate family and friends, which actually has made life on the Spectrum better for the eldest son as well as the author.
To continue to help others, the author has started a self-publishing company, Child Medical Education, and she has the goal to tackle other medical diagnosis to help children become comfortable with the differences of others through education and understanding. Current works in progress cover Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Cancer. It is the authors belief that children will grow to be more compassionate and tolerant adults if allowed the truth at a young age, versus being left to their imaginations until they are pubescent.
