Throughout the book, the author encourages individuals to become contributing members of society by using their unique needs, strengths, and talents. Read how a student gets a summer job by learning about the natural consequences of his choices rather than shaming or reprimanding him for his "bad" habit.
By observation and asking the right questions, the author's awareness of how individuals perceive the world around them is changed and the reasons for unusual and unwanted behaviors are uncovered. Realizing that behavior is a form of communication, Bonnie Jean learns to decode the hidden messages of undesirable behaviors and is successful in turning them into more acceptable actions. Read how a school suspension meant to eliminate negative behavior actually encouraged a student to repeat it. How Big Is the Fly? will challenge you to think before judging behaviors good or bad, right or wrong, as well as to investigate and take time to ask questions before drawing conclusions.

How Big is the Fly is a compelling story of a woman with endless strength and determination to help her children. She used her intuition and knowledge to guide her children in the right direction which allowed them to succeed. This mother's guidance many times contradicted other professionals' opinions. The book provides tips for parents with children who have disabilities who attend public schools. A very insightful read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Bonnie Jean says it all in her 1st book about trying to work within the school system to recieve competent help for the child with a disability. It is hard to trust anyone with the well being of a son or daughter with a disability. The seemingly absurd trials of Bonnie Jean and her children traveling year to year through the school system are all too true for the disability community. Parents who nurture children with disabilities will find this a 'Yes-And' type of book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
